Jim Bodenhamer near the start
This is on the Lost Arrow Buttress of Upper No Thoroughfare Canyon. This is a challenging area to find from above (preferred). It is a long hike in from below 4+ miles. From the E entrance to the monument, go up Rim Rock Drive, go left on DS/East Glade Park Rd past the monument boundary. Park in a large pullout. Cross the road, hop the fence, head south 300+y. You may find a cairn. Find a drainage down with a large bowl at the top. You can rap this or downclimb, carefully 4th class to a tree above a tighter slot. Rap down here, pad the rope (or find significant rope wear later), reach a ledge. Find another tighter corner and rap to the ground. I recommend leaving the last 2 ropes fixed. Bring ascenders.
A short distance from the rap line access. This neat little route goes up a left-facing dihedral with desert varnish. It goes out left around a little roof at midheight. Hand-sized crack brings you to a ledge. There is a little chockstone in the corner that may help or not. Rap 50'. Fun.
Double to triple #2-#31/2F.
