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.
DescriptionP1: Climb the thin crack that is easier that it looks from the ground. Protection can be a bit fiddely, but a small nut protects the crux move perfectly. After 60' the difficulty eases and you can traverse over to a 2 bolt anchor on the left or build a gear anchor at the base of the dihedral.
P2: Climb up the obvious dihedral to the top. Gear anchor.
Descent: Walk off by scrambling to the NW and back around to the base.
