Weaver's Needle Summit climb and camp out!

Fall sleep under the stars and wake up with the world below you on top of Weaver's Needle! While not technically difficult, it is a gorgeous hike and opportunity to overnight on top of the 4,500 foot Weaver's Needle. We'll start at the Peralta Trailhead in the Superstitions, and from there it's a 4-mile hike to the base of the climb. Next will be 3 pitches of very low 5th-class climbing (5.2 maximum) while carrying our overnight gear (sleeping bag, sleeping pad, water, food, whiskey, etc.). Once on top there's enough flat ground to sleep 10 safely without tents. Sunday morning we'll do 3 rappels back to the base and then do the 4-5 miles back to the trailhead. I will need at least one person in the group comfortable lead belaying and everyone should be comfortable belaying and repelling . Group size and ability will determine time, but figure about 4-6 hours from the trailhead to the summit.

More details here:

What you will need to bring

All personal climbing gear, harness, belay device, helmet, personal anchor ,at least 3 locking beaners, headlamp, backpack large enough for all of your gear plus some room for group gear

sleeping pad, sleeping bag. There are not room for tents.

Enough water and food for being out overnight.

[masked] call me with any questions.

Disclaimer of Liability


Involvement in rock climbing carries a significant risk of personal injury or death. CLIMB AT YOUR OWN RISK!

If you climb, you may die or be seriously injured. This is true whether you are experienced or not, trained or not, equipped or not, though training and equipment may help. It's a fact, climbing is extremely dangerous. If you don't like it, stay at home. You really shouldn't be doing it anyway. We do not provide supervision or instruction. We are not responsible for, and do not inspect or maintain, climbing anchors (including bolts, pitons, slings, trees, etc.) As far as we know, any of them can and will fail and send you plunging to your death. There are countless tons of loose rock ready to be dislodged and fall on you or someone else. There are any number of extremely and unusually dangerous conditions existing on and around the rocks. We may or may not know about any specific hazard. You're on your own.

Rocks and other objects can fall from the cliffs. They can tumble down slopes. This can happen naturally, or be caused by people above you, such as climbers. Rocks of all sizes, including huge boulders, can shift, move or fall without warning. Use of helmets is advised for anyone approaching the rock. They won't save you if you get hit by something big or on another part of your body. A whole rock formation might collapse on you and squash you like a bug. Don't think it can't happen!
