this was the first route ever bolted in tambun (2004) with the goal to reach the summit of the needle. the upper part was vertical jungle at that time, hence the second pitch was not socially bolted and only features 2 bolts on 25m. The crux at that time was fighting the aggressive red ants that were defending their nest at the summit! The crux of 2007 is the little roof at 10m height of the first pitch.

4 out of 5 stars nice

Didn't get around to redpoint the climb, as we got rained out. The roof is interesting, but also finding your way up the tufa.
