MoapaPkEast side chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 23, 2013

MoapaPk

With Tracy F and CP0915 (much thanks for camaderie and help). A bit less than 7 hrs car to car -- CP alone probably could have done it in 5 hours, but he waited patiently.

Comments on time of year: Judging by ice on Superstition at <4000' (seen the previous day) , the west side of Weaver may have been a little too interesting. To make up for the short days, we started by Headlamp a bit after 6AM MST. Weather was pleasantly cool, and we hit water along the way. The east side was in the sun in the morning.

Came out for a three day to do this, Buzzards Roost, and Superstition via Hieroglyph Canyon.

This was the second time Jack Kieffer, Jen Blackie, and myself have done Weavers. This time we had 7 people and rockfall became a real issue on the last pitch but its an awesome climb overall.

mhengstWest Chimney On New Years  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2011

mhengst

Car camped at Peralta Campground (a rather nondescript dirt pullout) hiked in over Fremont Saddle to climb Weaver's from the west. Ice on the rock lower down made the 3rd class approach interesting and we had large chunks of ice falling from the cliffs to the left of the chimney.

Someone has placed bolts near the metal stakes mentioned on the peak guides though I still used cams for the section right underneath the chockstone. Once above that we didn't use the rope until the rap down which was also off a bolted anchor. Hiked out in the dark down an icy trail.

Overall a great climb.

Went up this with members of the Arizona Mountaineering Club on a private climb. Right at the edge of my modest rock skills. Not the best weather conditions but great leadership.

Great adventure and fun climb. The hike up to the base takes more energy than the climb itself. There were four of us, and we roped up the "chockstone pitch", though it could certainly be free-climbed. Huge holds everywhere. Breezy day, great weather, and the rappel off the summit pitch was a true highlight! Lots of helicopters buzzing around, but no other climbers on the mountain today

As Deb said, we're pretty sure we were last set of footprints on the summit in 2009. Pretty easy climb via the West Chimney. Wine and fruit cake....plus a few New Years Eve kisses to boot! Great times with Deb...AGAIN! :)

I guess we were the last to summit Weaver's in 2009. Beautiful day, albeit a tad windy. Wasn't much use in bringing a rope other than to rappel since there were no good places for "real" pro. Enjoyed the scramble, the bottle of wine and Walmart fruit cake on the summit. Happy New Year!

A much easier climb to the notch from the east, but there is no trail to the base. The rattlesnakes love the morning sun on this side, watch out. It made for a long, hot day car to car from 6am to 4pm. Came back down on the west side, took the more established Peralta Trail. Made it back to Scottsdale just in time for a wedding!

Super fun! It was a beautiful day - tank top weather in the dead of "winter". Bring headlamps if you're planning on doing it in a day in the winter, and helmets because there's a fair bit of rock fall. The approach will take more out of you than the climb. Watch for cacti!

climbed this for the 2nd time with my buddy Etan. Already almost 90 deg, and still winter! Good easy climb to a cool landmark. (oh yeah-the tobacco in the summit box is getting a bit old)

Climbed with climbing partner Tim. The bushwack/rock hopping from the trail to the base of the climb was rough. The climb itself was fun, but very sketchy pro placements on the two technical pitches in the beginning of the climb to the large chockstone. Someone placed an American Flag on the summit which was a nice touch. Fun rappels down.
