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.
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.
