The Needles, South Face of Warlock. In June Jeff Dozier, Steve Gerdsen and I found a free variation of Beckey’s South Face route on Warlock (A.A.J., 1971, P. 355). To gain the summit crack system, we avoided an overhanging aid pitch by traversing left around a corner. The final three bolts on the summit block, however, will probably never go free. NCCS III, F9.
