Participant Information

Mostly hiking/scrambling with a couple of 4th class crux sections.  No snow at this time.  Park south of the Coquihalla Zopkios area just south of the salt shed.  Ascend to Markhor and traverse over to Needle and descend via the regular Needle peak trail.  I have a gps track from 3 years ago.  It was a bit bushy at the beginning, and the trail was faint.  There is some exposure, but we did not use our harness and rope.  It took us about 5 hrs car to car.  See Matt Gunn's description http://cairnpublishing.com/author/tripreports/summer/2005/needle_ne_ridge.htm 

Bring a harness and rope if you feel the need.
