Description 

Greevers' Needle was first shown to me by Chris Greevers, thus the name. I'm sure it has another name but from here on out it has an AKA:) it's a really cool looking spire with an even cooler and very accessible 5.4 summit! Its at max 12' x12' and it's approximately 110 feet tall. It's Located just 5 minutes north of Idaho Rd.


Getting There 

From the US 60 head north on Idaho Rd till it ends at McDowell. Park and walk north through the fence. A trail takes you into a wash, cross the wash at the carn and follow the tail up the hill. Head toward the Needle passing on the north side of a boulder field. The Gordon-Collins is accessed from the back of the tower.
