Description Suggest change

Another fun route up The Needle. This route climbs exactly where you rap, so it's a good option after climbing the standard route, as you're at the start after rapping. Otherwise, start on the southeast side of The Needle at the base of a right-leaning finger and hand crack.

P1: Climb the crack until it ends. Step right onto the face where good pro is found to the rap anchor. Belay here.

P2: Start up the right-facing corner, then move left on to the face to the summit.

Rap the route.

Protection Suggest change

I recall a crucial #4 placement. Otherwise a standard rack will do.
