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.

The crux of this route is climbing past the first three bolts. The rest of the route is a cruise except for the last couple of moves. The route trends up and to the right above a large roof, across a water groove then onto a nubbly arete.It took four outings to finish the drilling on this route.
