Access Issue: PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details
In the early '90's the USFS banned all placement of bolts in the Superstition Wilderness. This unfortunately includes replacement of existing bolts. Violating this ban may result in climbing restrictions on this beautiful area. Please think twice and go bolt somewhere else.
The Flatiron is a 450' wall of volcanic rock that is some of the best in the Superstition mountains. The Superstitions are located on the east edge of the Valley of the Sun. The Flatiron has a southern and northern exposure. The two meet at a visible prow seen from the valley below. Only a few routes have been done, earlier routes were scare fests that keep most away. For some reason, the shadier the route, the better the rock.
