I did the first ascent of this line in the mid '80s. I believe 1985. In typical local fashion, it does not use the Blitzkrieg arĂȘte or any holds on Dr. Needlepoint. The route was named Ziegfried Line in keeping with the WWII tank theme (look it up). As I recall, it was a tiny bit harder than Blitzkrieg when done without using the arĂȘte or Dr. Needlepoint holds but drops significantly in difficulty if you stray off route. Oct 6, 2014
