Needles and Pins

Not sure who put this up; rumoured to be called "Needles and Pins" Like many early AF routes this one's still cleaning up. Should be 11A when it does. Can feel much harder if you don't find the sequence (or clean holds). Take a brush....
Starts off with some stemming in a corner, which leads to a fun crux with some descent exposure. Good rest after the crux, then follows a crack to the chains.
This is the right-most bolt line on the wall to the right of the cave.
A few feet right of Orogeny.
8 bolts to a 2-chain anchor.
Jon Scoville starting up the slabby, stemming bit.

Soft for 11a. But a decent warmup for the better routes at the crag. Watch for loose rock from your climbers left foot. Unlike orogeny it's as chossy as it looks. Should continue to improve w traffic
