Climbing and access information for this named peak is on Pages 339-340 of the book. The Board of Geographic Names placed the name, I believe mistakenly, on this point rather than on the 9,449-foot point just to its south. This website has identified that point as Needle Peak HP.

Needle Peak is the named, [lower] north summit of the Needle Peak massif. It is most easily climbed in combination with nearby Needle Peak HP (9,449 feet). Needle Peak is a gentle hump and stands in stark contrast to the rugged, rocky summit of Needle Peak HP. USGS Mount Baird
