Route Climbed: 4th Class Regular Route Date Climbed: February 1980
John Orange and I hiked to the Needle from Peralta Camp Trailhead and climbed it via a short, two or three pitch line in February 1980. I don't recall anymore on which site of the Needle the route is. This was my first trip to Arizona desert and I loved the cacti, the rugged terrain and the formations. Great winter weekend trip from LA.
