|The Obverse Route||MVS 4b|
|24m, 2 pitches. A brilliant top pitch. Pass through the gap behind the Needle to reach an obvious crack on the side of the Needle facing Lingmell.|
1.) 18m (4b), climb the steep slab right of the crack on small holds to the Platform, then a large flake, followed by a slab, to the shoulder.
2.) 6m (4b), hand traverse right, along the horizontal crack under the top block (and over the Gap) to gain its northwest arete (opposite Needle Ridge). Finish with steep moves up the arete on good holds.
