I climbed this route at least a couple of times in the late 80s while spending alternate weekends in the Needles with a bunch of friends from LA. Agree with the others here, this is a good climb for the rating and it looks great from terra firma.
I've climbed this a couple of times over the past couple of decades. One of the best routes I've done anywhere.
Contains my favorite moderate pitch at the Needles, its 2nd traverse pitch. As with most climbing at the Needles, this pitch is not as intimidating as it looks. With Ted from the west coast.
