Description [Suggest Change]

One of the few hard Needles lines that goes completely on gear, tucked far away from everything else. Could be a while before this sees a free ascent.

It's the left leaning, zig-zagging crack on this steep multicolored wall. Has a definitive crux about a third of the way up but remains pumpy to the end. The angling crack runs into a larger vertical crack and the bolted anchor is at the top of this.

Location [Suggest Change]

200 yards south of Koh-Ring on ENE facing wall at entrance of large corridor. Visible from Chessmen proper with binoculars.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Double rack
Bolted anchor


Incredible moves on impeccable rock, one the best gear pitches I've been on! A yellow ball nut is nice to have. Aug 23, 2017
