Small, steep, free standing pinnacle. Seldom climbed and difficult. 2 routes on the Needle; Free Radicle 5.10+ R, description: boulder up to brake in west face, shortest, clip single 1/4" hand drilled, free lead, placed bolt and crank then mantle onto the summit. South Face; 5.11- R Thin cracks on south face, pitons maybe necessary.


19 m free standing pinnacle high above the Blob Buttress NE of Split Rock


Very little protection to be had on the pinnacle, mostly thin.
