Overview
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.

Check out the Official Route and Triplog.

This is a difficult hike. Arrive fit and prepared or this could get ugly.

    To hike
    From Safford, head south on U.S. Highway 191. Turn west onto state highway 366 (Swift Trail). Follow Highway 366 for approximately 3.3 miles to milepost 117. Turn right onto Forest Road 57 at milepost 117. Follow Forest Road 57 for about 2.6 miles, to where it effectively ends at a washed-out creek crossing (Marijilda Creek). There is room to turn around here and space for several vehicles. The hike continues north on Forest Road 57, past the washed-out creek crossing. Follow Forest Road 57 to its end, where the Gibson Canyon Trail #308 begins.
