Wild Horse Wall Rock Climbing
|PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! MORE INFO >>>|
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.
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.

We didn't climb this route. Including it as a landmark. Jim Waugh gives it three stars. It looks great. Mixed, with fingers at bottom and wider up top. At the top, go left to large ledge area with two old bolts for the belay anchor. Hard to see anchor bolts; not much else to use for belay anchor. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
