BETA PHOTO: The two bolts on Arch Rock Direct -- picture taken...

Description 

From the top of the Tilted Tower, climb about 6 feet down the back side to the wall. Clip a bolt about 10 feet from where the tower and the wall meet, and continue up the fun face over sculptured granite to the second bolt. Pass a set of anchors on the right and aim for the low point along the overlap (runout). The moves through the overlap protect well with a couple of medium camalots. At the low point in the overlap, step up into a small bowl and pull up through. Continue toward the summit through a series of curious water basins. The route ends near the top of the Regular Route. Walk off to the right.


Protection 

2 bolts, medium cams for the overlap.

I remember 2 bolts but the rest of the climb was super easy on bathtubs...bust the roof at the top at around .6 or .7. fun stuff.
