BETA PHOTO: steeper than it looks
99 Problems attacks the steep black streak on the North face of the Fan.
Climb the steep, chunky, black streak using crimps and smooth slopers past several cruxes with no great rests. After 70 feet, the angle eases so sprint to the anchor on good holds.
Put up on lead with hooks. All falls are clean, with nothing to hit but air. Nobody should shy away.
From the Needle's Eye parking lot, stand near the Thimble and look SE towards the Fan. 99 Problems climbs the black streak on the right side of the North face.
Walk towards the tunnel and hang a right through the obvious corridor that leads to Moonlight Rib; continue down through the narrow hallway. Once you are out of the corridor, hang a right, jump over a large downed tree and wander up the first gulley on your right until you are at the base of the route.
