5 out of 5 stars Intimidating crux

Linked P1-P2 (I led) with a 70m then moved over to finish on Spooky (Greg led).
First portion of P1 felt awkward. The crux near the top have a flared thin moves at the top. I was one move away from getting the on-sight, but ran out of stem an had to hang. Perhaps is best to climb P1 and P2 separate to conserve energy if climbing near your limit.

5 out of 5 stars Wooo

Great crack. First pitch is kind of lame; some loose and dirty crap. Took a healthy whip at the crux.

Last pitch is alpinish and awesome.

4 out of 5 stars Great intro to Needles Climbing

The finger crack was absolutely incredible! It's hard to find a crack like that at the grade...Sweet Climb!

4 out of 5 stars did in 3 pitches

pitch 1 to the ledge, then pitch 2 through the crux to a really nice ledge, then 3 to the top. onsighted p1, then fell once at the thin hands on p2. p1 is kind of ugly and awkward.

4 out of 5 stars great

can be done in two long pitches (1+2; to top) with a bolted station as anchor. \
thin hands, some lieback and some finger crack, so tape wisely
