17m, 2 pitches. The most popular way to the top of the Needle, with contrasting pitches, both very polished. The climb starts from the ledge just right of the gap.
1.) 13m, climb the crack, left, then right to its finish; then ascend an easy slab to the shoulder.
2.) 4m, the highly polished and notorious top block (crux). Mantleshelf onto the ledge below the top block (it is easier from the right hand corner but it can be climbed from the right hand corner). Traverse left onto the face of the top block and up to the top. Belay round and under the overhanging nose of the top block.

I got the top pitch which is a boulder problem that is insanely polished the top is amazing though eric and jessie took turns in coming up as did shaun. I down climbed which wasn't to bad as I found a sling placement on top that I could flick off. Pretty tricky 2nd pitch for a HS but its just a boulder problem with little gear. Cool route nice to be on a mini summit great day out loved watching the sun set as we abseiled off.

Almost getting blown off the belay and freezing cold; if we weren't so close to the ground could be called an epic! Walked back to Borrowdale drenched and drank lots of tea and beer in a flooded campsite.
What a day..! Long walk in from Borrowdale, arrive at the Needle in gale force winds and rain which then turns to snow. Wearing all possible clothes got up P1, Shaun managed to do P2 but couldn't hook the rope as the wind was so strong, sketchily downclimbed an we sacked it off. Almost getting blown off the belay and freezing cold; if we weren't so close to the ground could be called an epic! Walked back to Borrowdale drenched and drank lots of tea and beer in a flooded campsite.

Walked in from Seathwaite via the Scramble next to Taylorgill then along the Climber's Traverse from Styhead pass. Worked the start of the second pitch mainly due to nerves and secured belay with loops down to 2 breaks and a third loop to my second. Belt and braces but good practice although time consuming! My second put loads more gear in on the way down to protect my descent which was a very good move. Ended up walking back with head-torches on! Left a blue no7 rock under the block after spending 20 freezing trying to remove it.

jugglingeek 21 Oct, 2007 Lead β An epic day. set off at 8am from Leeds. Took the direct route up Gable via the screes. Very hard work. The first pitch was fine and a good sling was all that was needed for the anchor. Could have done with more large gear. The second pitch was scary as hell. Lots of good gear in the first break before a frightening move out over a 100 ft drop. Then an unreliable looking nut goes in the corner on the left hand side before you top out. To anchor I dropped loops of rope down and hooked them round the breaks about 4 feet below. My advice would be to leave the gear in place for the descent as the descent is even worse. Especially if you get cramp in your thigh. Surffing down the scree was great fun though. Take some old trainers and see how quickly you can get down.
