North America, United States, California—Sierra Nevada, Aiguille Extra

Aiguille Extra. In June Mike Heath and I climbed the obvious dihedral on the east face of the 1200-foot needle directly south of Third Needle in the Whitney Group. We called this needle or blade Aiguille Extra and rate it V, F8, A3. The earlier route referred to in A.A.J., 1968, was on Third Needle proper.
