PLACING BOLTS IS ILLEGAL IN THE SUPERSTITION WILDERNESS! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Probably the best time of the year to climb would be the winter or spring. Depending on the route one could climb in the early morning or late afternoon of summer. No crowds at the pinnacles themselves but noisy from the crowds hiking the trail below.
The rock quality is pretty good, looseness will be encountered though.

Getting There 

Hike up the Peralta Trail between 40 and 50 minutes. The four pinnacles that makeup the Nosepicker group will be less than 15 minutes off the trail. Once off trail hike the steep slope to your pinnacle of choice. We were at the base of the largest pinnacle (Nosepicker) in less than 1 hour from our car.

The Wee Chimney 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  Arizona : Central Arizona : ... : Nosepicker Pinnacles
Climb the obvious chimney and find protection in the pockets for the first 70 feet. If you have carried a #6 there is a placement for it, continue to beneath chockstone and do an awkward move or two in order to mount the stone. There is one bolt above the chockstone and with a long sling you can continue to the summit in one pitch or belay here. Climb nice handcrack and short face to summit...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
