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.
DescriptionOne of the better 5.9 routes I have climbed in the Superstitions. The rock is good and the protection is always available. The first pitch is around 90 feet if you belay in the obvious alcove (also the start of the second pitch of The Anonymous) and the second pitch is a little bit longer. The third pitch has many options and takes you to the summit.
LocationThe start is almost directly below the "window" of the formation. The start is the same for the route The Anonymous. The route should be very obvious from the base and while on the approach.
You can either rappel of the summit (west side), walk off the "window ledge" belay to the south and back to your packs (20 minutes of walking) or do three single rope rappels back to the base/packs after you locate the rap anchors near the top-out for Rockabilly.
