Description

This wall has good rock for The Superstitions, which isn't saying much. Fun, mostly moderate climbs from 3-4 pitches with awesome scenery. Seems remote despite it's close proximity to the Peralta trailhead.
Update: You no longer need to rap off the back of BCW and scramble down wash back to your packs. You can rap down Stroke it Gently. See big bruno description for info and pic.

Getting There

Park at the Peralta trailhead. Take the Bluff Springs Trail for about 1.5 miles over a ridge and into Bark Canyon. Turn left and scramble up the climbers trail to the base of the cliff.
