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.
DescriptionThe crux is the start of the third pitch. The move can be protected with a small cam (e.g. blue alien). The route does wander a bit. The Phoenix Rock (Jim Waugh edition) guide book has a good photo and route description. Rock quality is ok.
LocationThe route is on the left hand side of the wall. I will upload a picture of the wall and the route ASAP. The route wanders a bit, and some find route finding difficult. I have provided the route description (as found in Waugh) as a comment below. Take a look at the route photo, and read the description to avoid problems.
Please note. Someone has recently replaced the hardware on this climb. So, it is possible AND advisable to rap the route (take two ropes). It is possible to walk off the back side, but the going is rough and steep, and not fun.
