Description Suggest change

As you approach Rifle Arch, you will see a 500' tall, dark, varnished slab with a long diagonal roof spanning its width. It is vaguely in the shape of a giant mitten, hence the name.

Getting There Suggest change

After branching left of the benches, head to the base of the wall continuing left. You will pass several routes before you are force back down into talus and dirt. Keep an eye out for a faint trail leading back up to the base of the Mitten. There can be a fair amount of poison ivy in this area so use caution.
