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

 

Third and highest complex of the Northwest Pinnacles. Located south and above The Tower and The Hand.

 

Standard approach is to head southeast from the base of The Tower, up the hill past The Pickle. Circle south, then up gully southwest to saddle at main headwall. An alternative approach is possible from a northeast-facing gully near The Tower's base. Traverse a lichen ledge east and climb up a gully face past some unnecessary bolts. There are some boulder and ledge moves and a final steeper face (easy cl.5) before reaching the main headwall saddle.
