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.
South face, Left of Palo Verde tree.
P1: Face with some loose flakes (5.6) to shallow bowl and crack. Follow crack through another bowl, slightly angling right over loose rock following smaller crack to base of overhang. Crack continues over two bulges then traverse right, stemming faces, another short face to access ledge and belay.
P2: Angle right, then left across easy face around corner, up broken face, past shallow vertical crack. Traverse left, cam horizontal crack, clip bolt, then up steep face (5.8) using several small depressions and thin crack. Grade continues through some horizontal cracks with shelves and large blocky section with vertical cracks to boulder belay.
Downclimb gully/faces (cl.3) on eastside to piton/bolt single line rappel.
