Comments: Definitely back clean if you can, or better yet, dont place any gear at the start until you are up at the bolts otherwise... crazy rope drag!

Comments: What a great climb! I have walked past this tons of times and never climbed it. I agree, do it one pitch, way more fun. Extra finger size (blue metolius) to 0.75 is worth it, though the whole thing takes nuts its worth saving a few finger size pieces for the top.

Comments: I flaked on writing anything up about this! Fun route. After the first 2 or 3 pitches in the obvious dihedral just above the toe of the dihedral, you can pretty much go anywhere and the grade will be the same. Easy climbing with a few short steps up to 5.9. Mostly quality rock, but there are some widow makers in there, so be careful.

Comments: There are two bolted climbs to the left of Under the Boardwalk and still under the Great Arch (this one and a 5.10a just to the left). There are two other climbs (sharing a first pitch) the climb up from left of the Great Arch then branching out.

Can rap this with 2 ropes or using the intermediate anchors.

Comments: A little short but worth doing if you dont have much time. With a 70m the climb can be done in one pitch to the trees above the 2nd bolted rap anchor then a scramble to the top (maybe 10' of 5.low slab).

Comments: Maybe that one roof move is 10c, but the rest is cruisy.
