Took Jorge and Joanne up Dike and Needle. Only my 2nd go at Needle as I recall. That move above the bulge is cruxy. Well bolted (except for one misplaced one that is not in line nor needed) fun climb. Just two pitches really.

With Frank. I led all three pitches. Seven bolts (including the aged one) on the 2nd pitch and five on the final. The crux move if there is one would be pulling the bulge on the 3rd pitch, after clipping a bolt or two. Typical 5.10 slab climbing in Yosemite, just need good vision to pick out the features, step up, repeat. Not many edges. 2nd pitch is fairly sustained. Both are about 110' long. Rap the route with a 70m.
