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 Hobgoblin Spires are a bewitching, multi-summited complex of pinnacles that dominate the north wall of Suction Gully, the first side canyon left of Siphon Draw's obvious canyon. The spires are inconspicuous from many directions and blend into the high wall behind them. They are best seen from the amphitheater at the top of Suction Gully.
Reach the pinnacles by starting from Siphon Draw Trailhead on the loop road in the campground(Lost Duchman State Park).Hike up Siphon Draw Trail (Trail 53) until you're southwest of Suction Gully, the abrupt, cliff-lined canyon up left (north). Hike past an old road that goes left to the now reclaimed site of Palmer Mine. Past the road, look for a rocky draw flanked by small gravel ridges. A climber's trail ascends the right side of this shallow draw. Hike up the steep path to the gully entrance. Reach the spires by scrambling up the steep, boulder-filled gully into an immense amphitheater.
