Four of us headed out Thanksgiving day to climb Weavers Needle. We backpacked in and have our Thanksgiving dinner. I brought Turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce for Pete’s and my dinner. It was awesome!

The next morning we started out and followed the well trod and cairns route up to the climb. I wore approach shoes. Pete led the pitch from the pipe to the chockstone as one long pitch. We went to the right side which was the hardest move on the trip.

After that we free climbed the rest of the way up. The feet and hands for the climbs were solid and big. I didn’t feel the exposure was too great.

We had lunch at the top and then rappelled off the top and scrambled back to the chockstone. Then we did the final rappel. I remember my first attempt on weavers and how scary the rappel seemed. With my Canyoneering and caving experiences it seems easy now!

We got home in time to eat at the new Sies on River in Tucson.
