Description 

The "Arch of Titus" is another North-facing SSV beauty. This compact crag has a array of fine trad and mixed lines, most of which will become even better as they clean up. There are several new route possibilities here.

Getting There 

Park as for the Coliseum or the Pantheon. After crossing the creek and heading up the steep finger for a while, you may come to a fork in the "trail". Going left at the fork brings you towards a very deep draw/gully. Cross this gully and head up the talus to approach the Coliseum or Pantheon. Take a RIGHT at the fork to continue towards The Arch of Titus. Continue up the somewhat loose hillside, following the cairned and faintly beaten path switchbacking up the hill. Trend right (west) towards a tiny saddle with a boulder on the right side. Punch through the saddle and contour Southwest, you should see the formation appear through the trees. You've arrived!

This has a steep 25 minutes that can be much more impactful to you and the environment if you don't use some routefinding skills.

Climbing Season

Pre-Op starts just left of Post-Op, just below a ledge 2 small pines are growing out of. Scramble up to this ledge, and climb up the left side of a flake eventually reaching right to the other side of flake to pull past a hard section. Now follow cracks right on the arete all the way up to a roof, reach up and right to a jug, and swing right onto the face and up to the anchors on Post-op (by the bent pine tree) and lower.

The routes here are a bit dirty. The steeper routes have cleaner rock.
