Description 

Very aesthetic needle which owes its name to the sharpness of its monolithic summit.

This is located to the right of the big gully of Grupo Campanille, about 100 meters below it, between two gullies known as "canal inferior", which leads to the North and West faces, and "canal superior", which leads to the East face.

This needle presents a few routes along splitter cracks on excellent rock.

Getting There 

Follow instructions as for Grupo Campanille.

Pull past the roof and you are through the crux, follow the now vertical crack system on 5.10+/11- terrain to a pedestal on the right for a spectacu...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
