Comments: You can safely lead this route with cams to size #4 and nuts. Some rotten rock near the middle section. Down low seemed more difficult than near the top of the chimney/crack. The exit out of the system to gain the chains is exciting.

Comments: Casper is the rock in the bottom right that looks like it might fall off the other rock it is perched on.

Comments: The first pitch of Casper begins on the east side of the formation. One must mount a loose boulder to locate a somewhat hidden crack just left of boulder. The start of this pitch is loose, the crack is alright (5.7) and the traverse out of the crack is fairly loose as well.

Tippy-toe/traverse over more loose stone (north) and continue around corner (west) to a nice ledge for the beginning of pitch 2. We found one piton at the start of this pitch--the same type we found on Sisyphus. Pitch 2 ... more >>


Location: AZ : Central Arizona : Four Peaks Wilderness : Four Peaks : Four Peaks Motherlode (Easy 5th R)

Comments: We did it in one long day and did not find anything that required any use of a rope. I believe the entire traverse took six or seven hours (started at south end, near the mine) and ended on Brown's Peak. A fairly easy escape route can be found between the middle of the four peaks if one wants to do just half of the traverse.

A longer but more difficult trek is to do the circumference of the range...the eastern side is troublesome but yields some nice bear dens!!!
