BETA PHOTO: Triple A is the third route
From AFALCON GUIDE by Eric J. Horst:
"Begin at a 12 foot-high, right facing flake 15 feet to the right of Easy Layback. Climb the flake and face above to a stance. Finish up over the bulge to the top."
Trees at the top for TR. Not recommended for trad.

This route was first climbed by Arnold Wexler in 1943. It's original name was Arnold's Arduous Ascent.

The PATC guide lists this as 5.8. Whether it's 7 or 8, it's a fun climb and one of the longest at Carderock. The crux is the flake. Although the lieback holds are great, the feet are not (very slippery). Once you gain the stance above the flake, the rest is pretty easy.

In my experience, most people begin by climbing the face just to the left of the flake. A bit easier that way....
