Description 

Getting off the ground is the crux!
Play around with the first horizontal until you can figure out a way to hold on to the next horrible hold solidly.
Go up to the ledge, straight up a little dihedral pass a roof by the left and keep running up this easier ground to the top.

Location 

Base of the needle, overhanging start onto a horizontal crack.

Protection 

Someone was nice enough to retro-bolt the bottom section.
small to medium trad pro.
Stick clip highly recommended.
