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.
DescriptionMultiple cruxes will be discovered while on the route. The first pitch has a solid crack with good gear and a difficult to enter chimney. The second pitch has a decent crack with alright rock and a few moderately difficult 5.9 moves...There is a two bolt belay off right at and obvious, solid ledge (about 100 feet). From belay a short, somewhat unprotected and difficult face climb leads to a two piton belay in a large chimney. Either stop here or continue another 50 feet to a single bolt belay higher up in the chimney.
We stopped at the piton belay due to time constraints but the remaining 50 feet to the single bolt "looked" easier and maybe a bit rotten.
