Beautiful, breezy, slabby Ridgeline Crag above the Needles Gondola.
Excellent, top quality compact alpine quartzite.

Getting There 

10-15 minute hike directly above the Needles Lodge/Top Gondola Station. Expect a 20 minute hike. Start off on the upper bike loop trail and after 100' turn right off trail and head up past clump of conifers. Head towards the lower part of the main slab. This approach will help keep people from wandering up this sensitive alpine wildflower meadow and this scramble up the base to the two bolted climbs is a bit easier.
