Crying Dinosaur is opposite Spiderwalk in Suction Gulley and offers beautiful views of Siphon Draw and the surrounding Flatirons.
The rock is typical however, has been cleaned over the years and remains pretty solid in most places.
The crux appears low in the climb but goes pretty straightforward through its pitches


Siphon Draw Drainage
The start is on the North Side of the pinnacle - access the pinnacle by crossing the wash and going up and behind the south side.


Typical trad rack, there is an ancient piton on the second pitch, but because of its placement and rope drag potential, it can be avoided


Great rambling adventure climb.

Approach- about an hour and 15 minutes. Turn right off the main trail and go cross country to the base of the climb.

Gear- Two ropes, nuts, small tricams to blue, small cams mostly, about 10 draws/ runners, slings to freshen up rappel anchors.

Pitch 1- Circle around the pinnacle and start route at belay bolt. Big first move to ledge to tunnel and single belay bolt.
Pitch 2- Move right and up on good holds and thin pro to wider crack system with old pin to ledge. Follow ledge up left to two bolt belay.
Pitch 3- clip bolt above anchors and move up into easy thin protected terrain that will take you to the top anchors.

Rap 1 is off top to large ledge with cactus.
Rap 2 is from large ledge to ground with two ropes. Bottom half of rappel is free hanging! Mar 26, 2017
