Description

This newly climbed formation (May, 2011), is host to over 1,000 feet of quality adventure climbing. While the quality of the rock varies from poor to great, the climbing itself is excellent. Many new route potential on this formation.

Getting There

Follow the Meysan Lakes trail for a little over a mile and find the obvious tooth of rock to your right. Leave the trail and your pack at the toe of the buttress.

Noted pitons and old bolts/hangers up hill of Arc de Triomphe when we explored the Parisian Butress back in 2007. Looked like 1970s era hardware. Anyone know the history of the other routes on this formation? May 24, 2014

Yeah, I noticed those, too. One of my great regrets when leaving the Eastside was not removing some fixed lines I had uphill from Arc. Next time I'm down there I'll have to go take care of those. If anyone is interested in an insanely hard, perfectly splitter crack that goes for three pitches, it has anchors and is sweet. May 25, 2014
