About Pins and Needles:

This place is commonly referred to as "no tell em".

It seems like you got to be part of some secret society to get the beta for this place and I think that is BS. This area has a ton of Great quality granite spires with bolted and trad lines. This map: Map 1 will get you to the trailhead, and this one: Map 2 will get you to the main area.

Use the following photos for reference See Map 2
Rock 1
Rock 2
Rock 3

The following pictures are from the backside of rock 4. This is a great area to start with as it has 9 great bolted lines ranging from 5.6 5.12. Other than that all I can say is make your way to the other spires and have fun. Email me if you have any questions.
