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.
Start as for Kublai Khan below the right edge of a huge roof that is about 60 feet up.
P1: Climb the face just right of a wide crack to a ledge. Move left, then up to another ledge with a bolt (80 feet; 5.5).
P2: From the belay on Kublai Khan, climb up the smooth, pocketed face then up the left side of the face past three bolts (5.9).
Bolts placed on the lead from hooks.
This route climbs the center of the smooth, pocketed face to the right of the Kublai Khan roof crack.
