Description:

Start on ramp between Aquarium and Photographers Peak. 30ft up to first of four bolts, and face the crux. ~60ft runout at the top, but very easy climbing. Belay from the uphill side of the ramp, or you'll run out of cord. Get on this route..

5 out of 5 stars Classic 5.fun route.

One of my favorite routes in the Needles area. Well protected right at the crux. The only reason I gave it a PG13 is that there's a bit of a runout with a lot of rope drag toward the top. Bring some slings with you to toss on the chickenheads above the last bolt. I always do this route with the belayer setup on the top of the ramp. Then you just step onto the route with protection right there.

The only downside to this route is the hanging rappel that you have to scramble down to on the back side.
