Description Suggest change

Hitching Post is the spire making up the right edge of the Needles Eye side of the tunnel. A fantastic easy route ascends from very near the entrance to the tunnel itself, and tourists occasionally climb it and scream for help to get down. Some harder bolted lines are also scattered around the other faces of this complicated massif, and don't necessarily end on the summit pinnacle.

Getting There Suggest change

Directly across from the Needles Eye on the right side of the tunnel. The bolted lines are downhill past the guardrail.
