“Islet in the Sky,” Canyonlands National Park, 1976. This slender needle can be located on the large park topo map in the Island in the Sky area next to a peninsula of rock near Muffin Butte. This fine route follows thin lost-arrow cracks on the north face. It was first climbed by Ken Trout and others in 1976. The second ascent was made by Bill Ellwood, Bruce Leila and others (IV, 5.10, A3 + ).
