This is the largest rock in the Photographer's Peak area. Many good routes are available. Most climbs on this are bolted, although some gear routes can be found. At least 15 routes climb Photographer's Peak.

Getting There 

Drive to the Photographer's Peak parking area described under the area directions. Photographer's Peak is the large rock closest to the parking. Routes run all around the rock, so approaches vary by route. At any rate, this is another classic one minute Needles approach.
