... just stands 5km from home in a blockfield as a relic from a huge rock fall in 1972. But somehow it has never been discovered by any local climber for 40 years until my friend Alex decided this winter to do an unusual access to a waterfall for iceclimbing, when he suddenly found himself in front of this huge needle. Right time, right place!
