Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThis is a canyon whose lower section provides great ice climbing opportunities in the winter and good cragging routes further into the canyon during the summer. There are a few towers in the area as well.
Getting ThereThis is on the Lost Arrow Buttress of Upper No Thoroughfare Canyon. This is a challenging area to find from above (preferred). It is a long hike in from below 4+ miles. From the East entrance to the monument, go up Rim Rock Drive, go left on DS/East Glade Park Rd past the monument boundary. Park in a large pullout. Cross the road, hop the fence, head south 300+ yards. You may find a cairn. Find a drainage down with a large bowl at the top. You can rap this or downclimb, carefully 4th class to a tree above a tighter slot. Rap down here, pad the rope (or find significant rope wear later), reach a ledge. Find another tighter corner and rap to the ground. I recommend leaving the last 2 ropes fixed. Bring ascenders.
