Vulture Peak. This dominant 600-foot pinnacle is located about ten miles southwest of Wickenburg. After a few days spent in preparing the route on the east face, in October 1967 Larry Treiber and I took two days on the actual climb with a bivouac in belay seats. The first 450 feet are the most difficult, after which it is a scramble to the top. The route is exposed; it took 21 bolts and 22 pitons, one nut and a cliff hanger. NCCS IV, F5, A4, six pitches.
