Description

Distinctive Summit, Needle, with summit register. Similar in shape to the Moai stones of Easter Island. Climb it; before it blows over. A short route from the west notch, stepping out right onto an exposed face, with right facing flake and cracks to 2 m diameter summit, A couple of fixed pins, maybe. Rappel from slings and fixed gear. For a longer climb; climb nice south facing 5.8 stem chimney into regular route.

Location

Obvious pinnacle on skyline above, west, of Blob Buttress, East of Split Rock.

Protection

small Trad rack, mostly thin-fingers, 1 set.
