Description 

Part of the Snowbasin Ski Area. The Needles Gondola makes the approach a breeze. Mt. Ogden is pictured on all summer and winter Snowbasin Ski Area trail maps. Skirt under the Gondola and the base of The Needles and walk about 30 minutes to the lowest point of the Gray Slabs (far left) south side of the NE Face of Mt. Ogden. Look for the most compact rock left (South) of a prominent dirty left facing dihedral.
