Wow! There appears to be very little tree growth around the base of Cleo's Needle way back then..... I am betting the place had a much more alpine feel then..... Were they doing roped ascents back then?
I don't see gear anywhere or a rope.... solo onsight FA?

You know Burt, It just might be. Go to the forum page and view the pics of "Cleft Rock". Unless I have completely overlooked it I don't think this formation stands today.

Perhaps Cleo's 1st Ascent? This was "borrowed" from the Wisconsin State Historical society site. Taken by H.H. Bennett perhaps around the turn of the century?
