Brilliant gem of a climb, first pitch is great neat footwork needed climbing is straightforward enough and there is protection where you need it albeit a little spaced out but unless you want a hand rail and some queen lizzy steps cut in it is sufficient, second pitch is where this climb comes into its own, brilliant climbing for a severe, pro where you need it and some nice little moves take you just left of the arete, fantastic climbing for severe grade climbers like me, could benefit with some traffic but it's great none the less

Great little route, first pitch is great, the moss adds character to it, second pitch is lovely, needs more traffic, I will clean the first pitch soon so please climb.

Started up Needle Arete p1 as the wet mossy slabs had no obvious line. Easy for grade I thought.

I'd recommend not bothering with the first pitch, it's ridiculously green and more akin to gardening than to climbing. You can reach the stance by walking in from the left.
francois - Lead - 10/Mar/07 with Lorna
First pitch so green as to be unclimable. Done in the wet, with inexperienced partner, 2nd pitch up.
