This photo is taken from the bolted belay atop pitch 3 of "Tree Route" (5.6) on Dome Rock, down the road from the Needles.
that sounds right; thanks.
This is not The Needles. It is pitch #3 of The Tree Route on Dome Rock, located south of The Needles. It is rated 5.6 and is probably the most popular climb in the southern Sierra.
