Needle of great dimension, aesthetics and ambiance.

Its rock is quite varied, sometimes there is some sand or blocks in its North face, or its West buttress, but always with great lines.

Its South face presents compact granite of straight and clean cracks, with very little exposition to sunlight.

Its slender figure is a great temptation for the traditional climber.

Getting There 

In upward diagonal on the first sandbanks of El Cajon. It's very easy to reach it at first sight because of its easy location.

Climbing Season
