DescriptionThis is the best pitch of climbing under 5.9 in the Outlets, and maybe the best single pitch period.
On the side of Inner Outlet opposite the lake, look for a beautiful prominent crack. Climb it. A fairly long sustained pitch of great climbing with bomber gear leads to the top of the formation. The climbing is stout for 5.7, but it is so well protected it is a much easier way to the top of the Inner Outlet than the Wiessner Chimney.
This is one of the top ten pitches in the Needles for sure. A double rope rap from the to lads to the ground.
