BETA PHOTO: Arkansas Route.

Description 

This is a great wilderness rock climb on clean granite. It doesn't get much better in the Weminuche! (or anywhere in the San Juans for that matter). It has a free climbing crux down low, some tricky aid up high, and lots of memorable moments in between. It should go free.
Start in "fern gully" just uphill of Contraceptive Cracks.


Protection 

Bolted belays. Standard trad rack. Some extra thin stuff, small wires for the last aid pitch, along with other standard gear for clean aid.
