NY2009 : Napes Needle

3 km from Wasdale Head, Cumbria, Great Britain

Napes Needle
Napes Needle
This iconic spike of rock on the side of Great Gable is considered the birthplace of rock-climbing in the Lake District. The two scramblers are 'Threading the Needle', a tricky crossing of the tight gap between the Needle and the adjacent crag. (I'm not 100% sure the grid square is right; both the 25k and 50k maps appear to mark it in the far corner of NY2009, but it could well be in NY2109.)
