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

Description 

A 130 foot fin of rock face, chimneys, cracks and other oddities. It has the possibility to be secluded during the week or fairly busy on weekends since a few trails seem to wander near and around its base. The quality of the rock is solid and is a great spot to climb several routes easily in a day.

Getting There 

Either park at Lost Dutchman State Park and follow the trail 1/4 mile east past the Hand and Prong formations or park along the road to First Water Trailhead and take a trail almost directly to its base (recommended). Allow 35 min. to an hour for the approach.

Climbing Season

This is probably the best route on the formation. Nice rock and good protection are highlights on this route. A crux move around a bulge about midway up the first pitch, the leader can decide which crack offers the best protection--chose wisely. Either stop at the obvious ledge with a nice palo verde tree or continue upward progress (scrappy rock) and join the route The Snake to finish on the summit. If you have already been to the summit it makes sense to rappel of the palo verde tree back ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
