Description

Very fun route, starts in standard Conn Chimney with a nice Arete middle section and an airy face climb ending. Start on the east side of the formation about 30 feet north and around the corner of the obvious chimney on Grace Note Spire.
Climb to the saddle between the two summits and go up the easy arete placing protection mainly for the safety of the second.
When you get to the steep section move left from a great little ledge with some airy moves to the west face of the rock. The move is very committing and the traverse can be done low or high, ending at a finger crack with a bush growing out of it. The crux comes near the end of this (no details will be revealed) but remember as with most Needles climbing trust your feet.

Location

Read the general description page to find the route. Back up slings on summit as needed and double rope rappel off the west side. Be careful when pulling your rope as there are many potential horns to get your rope stuck on.

Protection

standard rack. Used a couple of hexes in some bomber slots.
