PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details

Description

I guess the crux is missing one of the bolts and continuing straight up instead of angling right. Rock quality is not the best. The first pitch has two bolts and one piton, at the piton angle right to locate the second bolt. If you continue upward from the piton the grade will much more difficult than 5.5. The second pitch continues straight up from the belay. Nice cracks take you to the summit.

Location

The start of the route is around the corner to the right of Last Fandango. Starts on a ledge. Two rope rappel off bolted anchor, same as Last Fandango.

Protection

Gear to #3 cams. Two bolts and one piton.
