South Fork of Taylor Creek: Across (north) from the routes Namaste and Huecos Rancheros is the Marmot slab. This is the left most route on the slab and is characterised by thin smearing and delicate edging moves. Getting to the first bolt is a bit hairy, but the rest of the route is well bolted. FA D Thomas/Stu Litjens FA: 5/1996 (ET is now the leftmost route on "marmot slab". Pins and Needles is 100 feet right of ET on dark red rock.

This was the First ascent of this route, May 1996
Bolted on the lead. This is a fun and demanding route. The crux is a thin edging move to an overlap.
