Didn't have a proper guidebook, just a list of classics and rough route descriptions. Realized as I was looking up towards the fixed pin what I was getting into. Looking down and seeing the dozen tourists taking pictures of you will complete your Needles "experience". A running belay MIGHT keep you from taking a 70 foot grounder before clipping the pin but I wouldn't want to test that theory! Did it in 1 pitch with long slings on everything: even with this I had some bad rope drag at the finish.
