From a TR on 14erW, the Needle was climbed on the 7th, E gulley, good kick stepping all the way to the summit. Reported that there's a thin spot near a v-slot, near the summit, sounds like the convergence area of the E and W gullies.
With the latest storm, I would imagine it's filled in a bit more.
Thanks for the update. A thin spot could be a problem with skis on. It's a gorgeous area but I'd rather not head all the way in there again this spring if the Needle isn't skiable.
Anyone happen to head in there this past weekend?
