|Black Arches Wall
Climb the left-leaning ramp to the start of the crack, step up and left (crux) into the left-facing corner under an overhang. Pass this via the crack and continue up the crack system, past the "Attic" and through the awkward second crux overhang at the top (weak links can avoid this by escaping to the "Attic" anchors).
Right end of the slabby bottom of the cliff, right of the Black Arch ArÍte buttress.
Descent is by rappel from the oak tree anchors at the top (60 meter rope barely reaches the "Patio") or by stopping at the "Attic" and rappelling (60m rope barely makes the bottom of the route).
Full Modern Trad Rack. No bolts.

Very pleasant moderate crack climbing.
