The south Needle is one of three peaks known as The Needles, on the ridge that runs from Lynn Peak to Coliseum Mountain. Best accessed from Hydraulic Creek in the LSCR.
This is a a challenging day hike with a difficult and moderately exposed section on the final ridge. It is also one of the least visited and most rewarding low-altitude peaks on the North Shore. In winter, ice axe and crampons are recommended.
