Face just to the left of "Dr. Needlepoint" and right of "Blitzkrieg".


Face on the Slightly overhanging wall where you can find the famous route "Dr. Needlepoint".


Typical great falls TR anchor. Lots of trees and natural pro.

I did the first ascent of this line in the mid '80s. I believe 1985. In typical local fashion, it does not use the Blitzkrieg arête or any holds on Dr. Needlepoint. The route was named Ziegfried Line in keeping with the WWII tank theme (look it up). As I recall, it was a tiny bit harder than Blitzkrieg when done without using the arête or Dr. Needlepoint holds but drops significantly in difficulty if you stray off route.
