Description 

P1. Two variations for start. We did right variation 5.8 which has interesting face moves. Belay at the tree. 120ft. 5.8
P2. Started with broken ledges to hands/wide hands/fists crack.
belay before bolted traverse. Gear ancor 120 ft. 5.7
P3. Startes with bolted short traverse - transition to left thin crack.
Hard well protected 10a move. Than very thin crux with some fixed gear- more like face climbing 11a - and than good finger crack 10c to the rappel station (one bolt+ fixed gear) 120ft 11a
P4. Start with 5.8 crack to the ledge where you have last pro for 5.9 move. From the ledge you should find positive hold and do several committing moves above your last gear. The feather from the ledge - the easier moves are.. 120 ft, 5.9
P5,6- easy to link - hands, wide hands to the tree with slings. 200ft, 5.8.
Rappel Arches terrace route to the left. Four 2x60 m rope rappels to the ground

Note: if you going to rap the route down - it not clear to me how to do it. You can not reach rap station at the top of p3 from the top of the route. ( need to find intermediate ancor). From top of p3 you probably should rap over abyss to top 1096 ? - I do not know...

Protection 

double from Black alien to Green camelot junior.

awesome. Should be more popular. Don't understand how some climbs just get wrote off.

What Bud said. If CMac reads this it'll be mobbed after the next guidebook comes out.
