Needlepoint Descent
5.0 Needlepoint Descent goes around this formation and then to the left, leading to the crux move, which is really, in my opinion, the only Class 5 move on the route. Guidebooks warn that this is an exposed and dangerous route to descend unroped, but most climbers will probably find it easy and no big deal after the awkward move right at the top, which is definitely tricker descending than ascending.
