Suburban Hangover is the first route you see on the Needle. There are a series of seriously overhung sport routes and SH is the farthest to you left. The crux is getting up to the first bolt. A stick clip is highly recommended as a fall would be most painful. Don't underestimate the 10c rating when bouldering up to the bolt.
6 draws and a long sling if wanting to top rope. This anchor shares with the route to the right as well.

The first bolt is a bit high, but there is a nice jug to clip off of. Just gun for it and have a good spotter.

Gillett's book says four bolts, but it's really five bolts to a two bolt anchor.

If you come into the first bolt from the right and clip it at your waist, this route feels more like an easy Eldo 10a or pumpy 5.9.
First bolt is a good candidate for stick clipping, and there is usually a large branch at the base for this purpose.
