Description

Climb the prominent right facing crack and corner. This easy route sandwiched between two moderate/hard routes makes great terrain to challenge beginning climbers of all abilities.

Location

Far left/downstream on Dr. Needlepoint wall. Directly in front of last large sandy ledge before starting scramble around to harder, slightly separated section of Dr Needlepoint.

Protection

Typical great falls TR anchor. Lots of trees and natural pro.
