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 the peak can be climbed 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 it should not be taken lightly. Access Deadman Ridge from the Round The Mountain Trail, by starting at the Gibson Canyon or Deadman trailheads.
