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.
Several medium to tall spires and strange formations that when viewed from a distance look like one large jumble of stone. There are zero crowds, shade and sun depending on the route(s) and opportunities for other climbs if one enjoys loose and strange climbing. The rock quality is not great or even good but climbable and moveable (loose). Wear a helmet and choose a belay stance that is out of the falling rock zone.
Hike on the Dutchman's Trail toward Miners Needle and when you feel it is appropriate step off the trail and hike to the formations. It takes around 1.25 hours from the Peralta parking area. The Sisyphus spire is the tallest formation but tends to blend into the area until one is closer to the base. Casper looks like it sounds (the ghost) and sits alone, downhill from Sisyphus.
