Description

This climb is right of Sirocco & is better protected than its more famous neighbor. Fun, steep face climbing on flakes & edges crosses the Sirocco ledge & continues up the face, tending right to the anchors. There is a crux is about halfway up passing a bulge, although the upper crux is engaging as well. The route could be extended to continue into Don Juan Wall, to the right but it would likely be more difficult than 5.11. One may also use this approach to get to the first anchors of Sirocco

Location

Located between Sirocco, and Don Juan Wall, on the East face of the Sorcerer. You start out of the gully behind the block just left(South) of the start of Thin Ice.

Protection

Some small nuts & cams for the belay at the start of the route. Only bolts are necessary for this route. A rarity for the Needles. 7 bolts, plus 2 for the anchors.
