Comments: Good gear throughout the route, listen to other comments regarding the 11 hex. FYI the upper thirdish crack is deeper and very possible to lose gear in if dropped and it takes a bad bounce on lead or building an anchor on top.

Comments: I thought this took gear well compared to other climbs at the mounds. Ample supply of features to build an anchor for the second. Descent gully directly behind that exits behind pedestal left

Comments: Some blind tricam/microcam placements between base and belay ledge. Rope drag is an issue if doing the entire needle in one pitch. Recommend starting at base.

Comments: Hike in from the Tumble rocks trail from the south side 300-350ft from the trailhead(last cottage) look left up a talus field to spy the head of a tower, its your goal. Me and my partner bushwhacked right but I think going straight up the field would be your best bet. Dirty but fun.
