Want to climb the Needle's Eye runout when you are pumped? Then this is your route...
Start down and right of the traditional start of the Needle's Eye, climbing over a bulge via an undercling and a thin crack, to and end, to a bolt, then past a seam up and right to a groove and then left to a flake and gear. The runout above the bolt is noteworthy, but the crux is down low. Small but good stoppers are available through the crux up to the bolt, but are pumpy to place.


Just down and right from the first pitch of the standard Needle's Eye route. A discontinuous crack with a bolt 30 feet up is the line.


A standard light rack to 1.5" plus gear to finish on the standard Needle's Eye route.
