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

Description 

We didn't climb this route. Including it as a landmark. Jim Waugh gives it three stars. It looks great. Mixed, with fingers at bottom and wider up top. At the top, go left to large ledge area with two old bolts for the belay anchor. Hard to see anchor bolts; not much else to use for belay anchor.

Location 

Obvious crack in center of wall. Descent: from belay, scramble north along top of wall 50-100 feet, and find a good rappel setup. Single rope rappel down Wailing Banshee.

Protection 

From Waugh: small to large nuts and cams. (Looks like standard rack will suffice.)
