Not much to say other than if you're here this route is worth repeating. Climb a slightly rightward trending bolted face to a lesser summit on the Far Downs. Typical Needles crystal climbing.


The bolted face route located on the southwest end of the Far Downs.


Five Q.D.s, Bolted Anchor

if you're in the area on routes like left wing of smaug and of quartz then you should get on this one as well. pretty slabby but if you trust the feet you'll cruise through it. Jul 11, 2013
