This is where you turn off the Canebrake road. It's easy to miss and had some big ruts. Low Clearance vehicles not recommended unless the road condition improves.

Just a short distance off the Canebrake road I had to park here outside the gate. This gate might not have been locked but if you proceed further you have to make a muddy creek crossing.

Looked pretty muddy. I was somewhat glad I didn't attempt to drive though here.

"No Tresspassing"? Yeah right. Isn't this a public trail in a designated wilderness area?

Sure would be nice if one could drive up a bit closer.

If by some chance you were able to get this far with a vehicle you would have to stop here.

A closer view of the Spanish Needle summit block. I believe a climb up this side is class 4.

On the ledge. Be extremely cautious if any snow, ice, or gravel is present. A slide off the ledge would probably be fatal. In this photo a little snow is present but was avoidable. I stayed as far to the right as possible.
