Moving into the crux! I didn't stem across to the horn. Just keep chimneying.  Coming up the first pitch! We ended up stepping left to a roof then up and traversing left. I would continue past the traverse before building a belay for P1.  Climbing the Needle headwall in a dense fog. Felt easy 5th Class with more exposure / steeper than the Flatirons (Boulder).  Forty at The Back Forty on Fourth of July weekend.  Moving into the roof crux. Underneath the roof was dripping wet...which made it feel really cruxy. 5.9 if you're tall and can reach good holds. I'm not.
