PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details

Description

The first crux encountered is down low as one climbs rotten, strange (but normal for the Supes) pods and crack to gain the nicer looking crack above. The next crux is the transition into the nice, solid crack that ranges from fist to fingers and continues to the crumbly summit.
This route feels hard for a 5.9. Although, short in length it provides some decent attitude adjustment for the cocky type...

Location

You will find the route fairly easy since it is the nicest looking line on the formation. The middle and upper section has a look similar to Paradise Forks (does not climb like PF though).
Single rappel gets you down.

Protection

Finger size up to #4 (all singles) and nuts. There are some old, home-made anchors at the summit.
