Description Suggest change


  • Eight (8) bolts plus a two-bolt anchor. 
  • No chains on the top anchor bolts yet. Add two quickdraws when you reach anchor bolts. Rap from top to remove quickdraws when done. 
  • Crux: The crux is half way up with some small holds and barn-dooring potential.
  • The route is about a 5.8 to the 5.10 crux and then about 5.8 above the crux.

Access Issue: Remember to stay on the Casa Grande side of the formations. Just north of this route is the Gila River Indian Community, a sovereign tribal nation. Respect their laws and self-government.

Trivia: Route named after three of my sons: Samuel, the kind big brother, who loves his little brothers Michael and Jackson.

Location Suggest change

This route is the most eastern route on the Casa Grande side of the formations. Look for bolts on the most vertical wall.
