Description

Probably one of my favorite 10s at Barn Bluff. Needles and Pins is sustained 10a climbing for the majority of the climb. Start below a small overhang. Move right past the overhang, clipping two bolts along the way. Climb a somewhat slabby and run out (by Red Wing standards) section to the next bolt. Continue past this to more vertical rock to the left and gain the anchors.
  • RCM&W #126, p. 140.

Location

This route is the second bolted line left of the large roof, immediately to the left of Dances with Pete. Look for two bolts fairly close to the ground on a slightly overhanging arete.

Protection

5 bolts, to a two bolt anchor. Please use your own gear for top roping.
