Deadman Peak is a prominent sharp peak in the Pinaleno Mountains above Safford, Arizona. This 7505-foot peak is guarded on all sides by cliffs hundreds of feet high. Although a 6371-foot peak nearby is shown on maps as Deadman Peak, most locals refer to peak 7505 as Deadman.
Supposedly you can climb the peak without technical rock climbing gear by approaching from the west along Deadman Ridge. There is likely to be serious vertical exposure on this off-trail hike, and you should not take it lightly. Access Deadman Ridge from the Round The Mountain Trail #302 by starting at the Gibson Canyon or Deadman trailheads.
