The new installment of the Galaxy area. Can be seen from almost anywhere along the main canyon trail as the big obvious orange arch above Bug Barn wall and to the right of the Waterfall Wall. So far the routes here are pretty darn classic.
One of the best walls in the area along with Milky Way (perhaps the whole canyon).

Getting There 

Simply continue on the trail past the Endor Wall and stop at the wall with the obvious big orange arch. Can't miss it if you are paying any amount of attention.

70m rope required.A long, moderate, bolted line whose character changes several times as the route ascends through varying limestone bands. Fun, occasionally tricky movement with an intimidating-looking section through the right edge of a double-roof area.Start by climbing to the left of a short, semi-detached "pillar". Follow the initially-rightward-trending bolt line through steep, rough limestone on small edges to a ledge. From the ledge ascend along the right of a groove to the base o...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Great climbing, well worth the hike. All four routes in the center of the Tatooine wall are fun on good rock. The 11b and 11a were thin and sequential with good holds mixed in for places to suss out the climbing ahead. Fun, fun.

Not really. I guess you could take up a bag and clear out a spot for a bivi. Where is the question...

There's a bolted line left of Triumphal Arch. Any idea what it is?

There are two lines to the left. Both are 5.12+. There are 3 lines above all 5.13 or harder.

Anyone know Tatooine really well? My friend and I went up there because all routes there are really highly rated here, but we had a REALLY hard time finding any of the bolts/routes, except this one, shown below. I decided to go for it, but got to a place that I couldn't go any further and had to leave a draw up there (red circle on the photo). I'd love to get to know the area better, because the climbing is apparently the best in the canyon, but the routes were so hard to find and the approach so heinous that it's not worth it to me to go back up there unless it's with someone who knows it ... and can climb probably .11a so they can retrieve my draw for me. ;-)

Anyone up for showing me around up there?

There was also an orange Camp brand draw left on the bolt below where I got to that I picked up and hauled off: if it's yours, get in touch with me!
