Description Suggest change

This is the classic line up The Needle. Cruiser climbing and airy exposure make this a great first multi-pitch trad lead or follow, not to mention a fun rappel.

P1. Start at the base of the Needle. Stay left and follow blocky features that offer good pro to a small roof. This roof offers good pro and a fun move, but can also be circumvented. Belay 25 to 40 feet below the big roof (5.7).

P2. Either climb the well-protected roof (5.8) or go around right to the southeast side of The Needle (5.7). Enjoy the summit!

Descend via the slung boulder at the top. One rope gets you to a rap station about 80' down. From there, you can reach the ground.
