|Peak:||Crestone Needle (14er)|
|Range:||Sangre de Cristo|
|Date of Info:||07/11/2020|
Hiked east crestone, northeast crestone, crestone peak, and crestone needle in a day without the traverse. Once getting to broken hand pass (either after doing the peak, or as the first peak of the day), the ascent gets pretty steep once you get into the gully's. Traversing the dihedral up and into the final gully up to the summit is marked with pink flagging tape to help find the route better. Although it is marked, it's still super easy to have a hard time remembering where to exit the narrow gully off the summit so remember where you exited/entered the gully.
