We did it in two long pitches (70m rope). My first climbing and lead at the Needles was the first pitch of this route. Excellent and sustained fingers. Love the flair on the 2nd pitch, my kind of climbing physical and in your face for the grade. The second pitch lead on Airy Interlude was more memorable to me, but this might be the best overall moderate route on these two facing walls.
We saw another party on this line while on Witch Doctor on my first day in the Needles and had to climb it. The first pitch is long, sustained 5.10 climbing with an interesting crux; the second was long and physical with a very tricky start into a wide flare. Fantastic.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
