Description

Great crack climb for the Needles although a bit chossy and rough on the hands. Climbs the left facing corner up through a physical bulge then easier crack to the top of flake. We made a belay here, and supposedly the route continues to the right, up a shallow groove to the top. Deterred by poor rock quality and no protection we opted to needles style rap of the flake.

Location

On the S side of spire, just left of needles eye-like hole, climb the left facing corner. Single rope rap off of top. Or NSR after first pitch.

Protection

Standard rack with a few doubles on finger and hand sizes. Not sure if there is any fixed gear on the second pitch...?
