Access Issue: 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.
Two crux's and a healthy dose of loose rock can be enjoyed on this cool climb. Climb up to piton and engage in gentle and subtle movement through a crack and cascading rock out left. Squirm through short system and belay on cozy ledge with bolt. You will be able to see the second piton from this belay. Climb to piton avoiding the large moveable pieces of rock and figure out the sequence to gain the upper section. Easier but loose climbing leads to the spacious summit.
Just west of the Monster Mash Tower. The route begins on the south side of the tower, you can see the lower piton. A good bushwhack once you leave the comforts of the groomed Treasure Loop Trail. This formation is hard to distinguish from a distance because of its close proximity to the massive wall behind it.
