East Comfort Route is located on the East side of Cleo's Needle. Start at the base of a pretty obvious dihedral. Make your way up the dihedral by stemming and using the crack. The dihedral is very relaxed and continuous. The dihedral gives way to face climbing about 15 feet from the top. Climb up the final summit pinnacle using nice face holds. Once at the top either sit on top to belay or go around to the other side of the needle to stand on a nice big ledge. Rap off using the ring at the top. Be sure to notice the wobble of the summit block.
An assortment of small and medium stoppers or cams. Takes pro very well. Setting up an anchor at the top may be a bit tricky.
