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.
DescriptionA pretty cool route that might frighten the beginning 5.7 leader. The second pitch, while never that difficult, felt a tad loose and exposed even though it was a chimney and ledge system. Climbing this route and Pseudonym and some of the shorter summit routes makes for a good day of scrambling.
LocationThe route begins beneath the "window", climbs the first pitch of Pseudonym and then climbs a long chimney system that remains hidden until the start of the second pitch.
One single rope off the west side of the formation.
