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.
DescriptionWhile never to difficult, the second pitch contains some loose rock that could pose a problem with your belayer. Near the summit (or the end of the second pitch) you can choose from a variety of ways to read the top. Lots of loose rock awaits, choose wisely.
LocationThe route begins on the south side of the formation on a somewhat bushy ledge. First pitch trends left and then up the crack, belay below the obvious loose chockstones off right. Pitch 2 clears the chockstone and through a big jojoba bush and ends at the summit.
Downclimb or do a short rappel back to hole/tunnel you pass on the way to the summit and do a single rope rappel off a sturdy palo verde tree to the north.
