This is a nice, moderate, wide crack with a sprinkling of face and fingers.

P1: Squirm up the wide crack on the left side of the large gully. It ledges out a few times, but is interesting and fun. End on a ledge on the left, or, better, climb the face and belay on another big ledge. ~100-130 feet.

P2: Climb the short face (~10 feet) to a ledge, walk right to another wide crack, and hit the airstrip on top. ~50 feet.

P3: There are many choices, but the route standard takes the incipient crack in the back of a right-facing dihedral. You can also jump across the gully to the right to gain the rappel bolts of Arch Stanton as well.


This is in a large gully, "22 yards" left of Arch Stanton.


Wide stuff, from hands to knees. If doing P3, bring small gear as well.
