 Pro: There were some bolts and a couple of OLD but good pitons. We used nuts, tri-cams and spring loaded cams. We needed (2) 60 meter ropes and anchor building material.
:y: Great Fun! Robert and I started at sunrise and finished in the dark. Half of that time was hiking the approach and the trip down. Our packs were full, we rested, took pictures, ate and laughed as I pleaded my case for smaller routes. I love full day adventures and this one certainly pushed beyond the daylight. Mother Nature treated us to an amazing sunset. (Joel where are your pictures of that one?)We even got a few sprinkles on the way out.

This was a 3 pitch climb on the right side of Siphon Draw. We turned it into a 4 pitch climb because I was a little nervous about getting stranded on the first move....LOL!
This is a link to the little video I made of the climb.

The Crying Dinosaur has been on my list for awhile. :wrt:(dang list!) It has been on hold while I've been working my way through a few injuries.....torn costoclavicular ligament(collarbone - Dec 08 to March 09), a torn ACL/MCl (left knee - May to Aug 08) this past year. Although I have thoroughly enjoyed physical therapy I am beyond happy to be pain free, hiking, backpacking and climbing again. :D It was great to check this one off the list before the year came to an end!

Happy New Year to all of my HAZ friends! Your pictures and tales of adventure have been an amazing source of motivation and inspiration.
