The 6th time was a charm.

We did not see many hikers on the way in, or the way out. Barks Canyon was flowing nicely and there was a light flow along Terrapin Trail. The final approach and off trail navigation to the base is considerably easier now due to the lack of vegetation. No bushes to whack. From Bluff Springs Trail to the base of the Needle, it was 100 percent devastation for the most part, which was a little tough to see. But the long scramble and iconic summit still elicited some nostalgia and brought us joy.

It took us 7.5 hours car to car.
