Description

The climbing area is on the back side of the formation as seen from the needles eye parking lot. It is down hill from the Goldline formation. The formation is not very impressive from the Needles Eye side, but the back side has a few sections of rock that are over 100 feet high.

Getting There

From the base of Goldline, head down hill to the next rock formation. You can go around the right side, but the left side is easier. the climbing routes are on the opposite (downhill) side of the formation. It is only about 4-5 minutes from the Needles Eye parking lot.
