PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details

Description

Fun pocket pulling and probably best done as a top rope. Start on top of boulders on good jugs. Pull up past crimps and pockets on sustained vertical terrain. The first(and only) bolt is located after the crux about 30' up at a good rest. Another 20' or so of 5.10 climbing gains the ledge with a 2 bolt anchor on the left.

Location

Center of the South face. 15' to the right of Bay Tree Belay.

Protection

1 bolt. Could probably use some of the pockets to place tricams or small gear.

On the FA a tied off hook was used as protection at the top of the crack (those were still the quasi-trad days)... Feb 24, 2013
