DescriptionThis intimidating, forgotten line would make a perfect representation of what most people think of the needles; Terrifying. Very little was known about this route so I'm guessing at where the first pitch went exactly but seems like a logical assumption.
1) 5.11+ 130'
Begin up the Conn Diagonal and branch off into a black flared seam about halfway up. Gear is finicky but good. Belay at bolted anchor at large horizontal.
2) 5.11+R 140'
Traverse further right on ledge to the first bolt. Pull a couple thin moves (crux) to easier but super run-out climbing. Each bolt is near impossible to spot from the previous. Bring slings for horns and micro gear to supplement the 4 bolts in 40m. Refer to the topo to see exactly where this pitch climbs.
