I had nothing going on the morning of July 4th so why no get up at 3:30am take a hike to Weavers Needle. I wasn't sure I would ascend the Supes monument but with the cloud cover I thought it may just be a nice hike even in July. We got to the base of the needle and I was pretty sure I should have brought a good book to read while I waited. Bob climbed up and dropped a rope, Joe climbed up, Jim climbed using the rope, Lee climbed up and I sent mine & Joe's packs upon a the rope. Oh what the heck, I think I can hang onto a rope and ascend a class 4 grade and so it went. The climb after the initial 40m feet is fairly easy. There were a few spots that required a look at first but doable. We relaxed on the summit and took it all in fora while. After we climbed down for the final rappel,a few drops of rain fell but that was it. On the hike out, it was surprising to see several people hiking on Peralta trail but in retrospect they were the sane ones. Needle Madness, where does it end? :lol:
