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

Description 

East facing wall, sunny in the morning. Secluded, with big views of the superstition wilderness. About 100-150 feet tall. About 200-300 yards north of Barks Canyon wall. Good rock. We used Jim Waugh's Phoenix Rock book and that was enough info to get there.

Getting There 

The approach takes about 45-60 minutes. Park at Peralta trailhead, and take the Bluff Springs trail until you are below the Barks Canyon wall (25-35 minutes). Instead of going up to Barks, follow the trail about a hundred yards or so further, until you see a small, brushy, dry wash come in on the left. Look up to the left and you can see Wild Horse wall with a prominent crack going up the center of the cliff. Hike up the steep hillside fairly directly to the crag.

I was too scared to lead this route, so we lowered down from the top and climbed it(we used a solid pinch about 30 feet back from the top). Great climbing!, though I probably would not lead it. Second route to the left of the Bronc. About 30 feet left of Bronc. Look for an old bolt about 15-20 feet or so off the ground. Climb good dark rock up to the bolt (5.8R), then more good 5.8R climbing to second bolt. I climbed up above second bolt about 20 feet (more 5.8R), then moved left to a lowe...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
