Description

Nice crag with some moderate climbs and relatively soft grades. Most climbs stay dry in the rain.

Getting There

Approach via the North Trail from the main parking lot. At the bottom of the North trail turn left onto the gravel valley floor road, stay right at a fork in the road and pass the trailheads for Animal Crackers, Great Wall, and Hideout. Follow the road as it turns sharply left and uphill near an outhouse. Near the top of the hill turn right at a sign for Solarium, then make an immediate left. Pass the trail for the Solarium and take the next trail on your left which is well signed for the Great Arch. Hike up the hill arriving near the base of Lip Service.
