Description:

Climb a nasty looking crack which is actually a great deal of fun. Traverse right around the spire at the top of the crack, and make a wierd move to reach the easy upper face. Another classic route that protects well.

4 out of 5 stars Tent Peg

My first Needles climb. Bolted belay up top makes this unique formation a little less exotic. There's a ton of great pictures of this route, search around a little...it sure doesn't look like 5.7

4 out of 5 stars tent peg

I have read descriptions that start the climb on either side of tent peg. We climbed between the 2 towers, super pin & tent peg. a narley crack leads up past two small trees to the top half of the spire. Then the climb gets sweet. Two bolts with chain links. You can then TR the face for a second great climb.
