Description

This is the large ridge that separates the main forks of Black Velvet Canyon.

Getting There

Park in the standard area for Black Velvet Canyon. Follow the usual approach trail until you reach the spot where you would head uphill to Whiskey Peak. At this point, descend to the right (north) into the wash. Climb out on the opposite side and follow some trail threads west to the cliffs.

Anyone know what the sport route to the left of Arrow Place is? We did it and thought it was fun, just one hard move at the bottom which we thought maybe 10+, afterwards really fun 10- moves on the flake to reach the arete. Shares Anchors with P1 of Arrow Place. Apr 2, 2012
