Myself and two others climbed the needle via the traverse from Crestone Peak. With a high camp in Spanish Creek were we able to climb the North Buttrees of Crestone Peak, do the traverse to the Crestone Needle, descend to Broken Hand pass then over to Humboldt Summit. From there we went to the Bear's Playground and over to the summits of Kit Carson and Challenger Point before descending back to camp. 15 hours total. We were quite bushed but the end of the day! The Crestones are wonderful mountains!
