|Three O'clock Rock
Under the Bored Walk follows a line of bolts up the right side of the Great Arch area. The first bolt is located on a large, left-facing flake – either start on the flake, or below it and step over. Once over the flake, continue up a low angled slab past two additional bolts to a two bolt chain anchor. Clip one of the anchors, and continue straight up past three more bolts to the upper anchors below the roofs of the Great Arch. Two ropes will get you back to the ground in one rap, or use the intermediate anchor if you only have one rope. Easy, fun warm up for the area.
Three O'Clock Rock. Right hand side of the Great Arch area, first climb as you approach along the trail.

Great lead for the novice! Well-protected 5.6/7 move at the start, then easier cruising up the knobby slab. Well bolted for slab though a bit wider than for a sport route.
