Erin heading up the second pitch. Pretty fun, easy climb. Not too sustained, as much 5.0 as there is 5.4, but the 20 feet of 5.4 chimney at the top of P2 is great. Great views of the summit.

Meander up easiest looking rock on the uphill side of Bettes Needle. Small chimney section midway. It is possible to do this in 1 pitch, mind rope drag though. Do 1 2 rope rappel from 1/4 inch bolts on summit, or one rope rappel to lower anchors then 1 more rope the the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
