Darth Vader's Revenge
Monday, June 8, 2009
The Needles have captivated colorful characters throughout climbing history; this is an area renowned for its hardcore ethics and ground-up style of opening routes. As a result, there is some super-stimulating climbing, which can sometimes involve sparse natural protection (RP's adorned with Screamers), the occasional hand-drilled bolt (buttonheads with Screamers), and the frequent gripping run-outs on sharp granite crystals (wishin' you had some shit attached to Screamers). All in all its great fun!!
After a solo road-trip odyssey through Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada, I'm back in Cali' for another summer of froggin' in the Sierra!
