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?

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.
