Description 

Arborist Arms is the middle of three bolted lines on this sector of the Falls Wall. This climbs up on small edges. It has good stone, interesting climbing, and is worth a visit if you are in the area.


Protection 

About four draws and rope.

This is a great route if you enjoy, nay, love and live for edgy, super crimpy climbing. Better grab the board lasted shoes and sand yourself some edges. While generally well-protected, I carried with me a couple of nuts (not including my climbing partners...) sized 4, 5, and maybe 6. Throw a draw or some webbing and keep them handy. I admire the hell out of anyone who can claim a flash of this climb.

FA info incorrect. FA by Chris Drysdale 1987, in guidebook Scenic Solitude published 1988.

Elliott,
Thanks for the correction. Richard, who put the FA info in was making an incorrect assumption.
