Thin Ice  Sucess!

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.

sweet  Sucess!

great climb - second pitch was definitely "memorable", and the first pitch fun and sustained.

Super cool

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.

An amazing line  Sucess!

Climbed this too long ago to remember (early 90s) but it left a distinct impression. The second pitch up the 5.9 flare is...memorable.

incredible route Jun/05  Sucess!

The positions on this one are unbelievable! 5.11's on either side and this gem of a 5.10 right up the middle of the face.
