About Bark Canyon Wall:

Stunning 300' wall in the heart of the Superstitions. Offers some of the best multi-pitch climbs in the Phoenix area. From the Peralta Trailhead, take the Bluff Spring Trail north for about 1.5 miles. It climbs up and across a broad ridge, then descends down into Bark Canyon. Just before you cross the stream bed at the bottom, look for the trail marked with cairns heading directly left and up to the obvious wall / @45min total. The rock at this wall is quite good and clean. The routes are fun and the views are fantastic. Standard descent for all routes is single rope rap off back side (west) from Glory Road anchors (someone has replaced one of the old rap bolts with a big, shiny new one... bless their heart!). Hike south/east/north around formation on fairly good trail (@20min).
