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.
DescriptionAs I climbed this route I thought it felt like another hard 5.9 only to find out the rating is a 5.7. I have succumbed to the fact that in the Superstitions I have no idea how to climb, rate, judge anything over a 5.5.....
Bottom of the route is junky and loose, middle section is decent, top of formation junky and loose.
