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.
The third pinnacle south between The Cucumber and Superstition Curley.
Climb multiple cracks into grungy, shallow chimney to wider, more solid notch. Stem up to false summit on east face. Step across gap, up face, seam, and mantle onto small ledge, then one short boulder move to the summit. Probably want to be comfortable climbing 6d, as the pro on the face and in the seam, seem cosmetic.
