Southern Superstition Formations Rock Climbing
Acropolis late afternoon
|PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! MORE INFO >>>|
This section features the southernmost cliffs of the Superstitions, including Carney Springs Wall, Fire and Ice Wall and The Acropolis. These formations are found to the west of Peralta Road that takes you to the Peralta Trailhead.
The rock in this area is somewhat standard Superstitions quality, so stay alert for loose stuff and bring a helmet.
From Phoenix, drive east on Highway 60. From Apache Junction, drive another 8 miles on US 60 to a left turn onto Peralta Road. For the approach to these walls, park a 1/4 mile back from the Peralta Trailhead parking, and left of the road. I guess there is a gate now blocking the short road that used to be used to park for this area.

More great pocket pulling through the next two bolts leads to the monster jug finish. A bit of a run to the anchors afer the last bolt, but the difficulty eases considerably and the pockets are huge...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
