The black-and-white photograph shows two men working on lifting a Chasmosaurus belli skull with a Triplex block (tripod with pulley). On the left side of the photo stands this tall tripod. For legs, it has three 12'-15' tall wooden logs that come together at the top to form a tripod with a pulley system attached to it. In the middle of the picture, one man is pulling on the rope of the pulley system while wearing gloves. On the left of the photo, a second man is leaning against one of the legs of the Triplex block while observing the procedure. The rope is tied around the wrapped Chasmosaurus belli skull being lifted off the ground. In the background of the photo is an outcrop with tufts of sagebrush scattered across it with a tarp resting at its base.
