Access Issue: PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! Details

Description

A fun climb to an excellent summit.  Never difficult but a short thought-provoking move near the summit as one exits the "eyes".  Some face climbing, short chimney/crack and good exposure highlight this route.  With wise use of slings, can easily be done in one long pitch.

Location

Directly south of the formation that hosts the route Knuckle Head hides the Monster Mash Tower.   The tower has a series of large holes or "eyes" right below the summit that make for a great belay if the route is done in two pitches.

The start of the climb is on the south side of the tower and begins off a lower ledge.  Climb up face and behind a short pillar.  Small bushes and acacia are a minor nuisance.  At top of pillar climb into the holes and either belay or exit out left and climb to the summit, feels 5.5.

Protection

Medium sized cams. Two old and one new bolt for a single line rappel.
