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

Description

Climb a short slab to access the crack splitting the face of the Prospector’s Rock. Make a move out of the bulge and begin climbing the glory hand crack above. As you go higher, the crack widens ending in a friendly flare. Watch your britches as you climb the flare, you might accidentally show some prospector’s crack! Above the flare climb a short face to the top. Two bolt anchor for descent and TR.

Location

The Prospector’s Rock has two short routes worth checking out if you’re looking for an easy alternative to the bigger routes. To access, hike uphill to the northwest to the saddle between cliffs. Here is the prospector’s camp under the large boulders. Scramble on top of the boulders above his camp following rock stacks built by the prospector to the base of the Prospector’s Rock. There is a short but sweet hand crack splitting the face of Prospector’s Rock.

Protection

Single rack BD .3-5, nuts. Doubles of 2-4.
