Description

This is the widest stretch of cliff, the first one comes to when arriving from the trailhead via the BAW path.
The cliff faces south but is short and wooded, making it cool in summer and early autumn, warm after the leaves fall.
Its left side is wet and very mossy; to the right of the main drainage, conditions improve greatly.
The climbing includes an easy dihedral, tricky slabs, and divoted face climbing. Pockmarks are ubiquitous here.

Getting There

Take the Black Arches Wall path east from the trailhead parking lot for 15 minutes.

The texture of the rock face (as previously noted), is unusual, almost like the dimple and valley texture on a golf ball (much enlarged though). The unusual texture makes hand placements tricky and climbing very "tenuous" and balancey. Oct 5, 2017
