Access Issue: PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details

Description

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.

Getting There

To access the west face of the supes, drive to Lost Dutchman State Park. The entry fee is $5 and a map will give you directions to Siphon Gully. Walk up the gully @ 2hrs til near the north side of the Flatiron and follow a trail heading towards the prow along the bottom of the cliff.
