Weavers Needle from Saddle of Peralta trail.

PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! MORE INFO >>>

 

An easy west, then east facing route to the window and summit.

 

P1: Climb face, then gully and ramp (cl.4) to two bolt belay/rap at window.

P2: Traverse left (south) on ledges past piton, then up any number of grooves to summit. There are several old bolts in various places at the window ledge level. An easy, more technical variation (orange Topo Overlay) climbs out the window on the northwest side, zigzagging to arch above, then can finish with the 30' overhanging P3 chimney of Pseudonym.

Medium to large nuts, a few cams.

South end of complex, single rope, two old bolts/boulder sling rap west.

Highlight of the route is belaying from the eye of the needle!
