Access Issue: PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS!
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.
This is probably the best route on the formation. Nice rock and good protection are highlights on this route. A crux move around a bulge about midway up the first pitch, the leader can decide which crack offers the best protection--chose wisely. Either stop at the obvious ledge with a nice palo verde tree or continue upward progress (scrappy rock) and join the route The Snake to finish on the summit. If you have already been to the summit it makes sense to rappel of the palo verde tree back to your packs.
The start of the route is few feet right of The Snake. It is clearly defined by the two parallel cracks that lead to the palo verde ledge. You can rappel of the sturdy and safe palo verde or off the summit via bolts.
Nuts and cams to #5. No fixed gear unless you continue to the summit.
