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.
The Cucumber route is steep and pumpy from top to bottom. We top-roped this route but it can be safely led on small to medium gear. Has a very committing opening sequence since the original piton is missing.
The Cucumber is located between the Nosepicker Pinnacle and the Kleenex formation. This formation boasts 3 routes; Cucumber, Doomed for Obscurity, Do It Clean.
Small to medium cams, nuts.
