Description

This is the large arch right (south) of Gertch's Half Brother. It faces west and can be easily seen when walking up the fan to Gertch's Folly.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

Getting There

Hike up the gully between Gertch's Folly and Gertch's Half Brother, then follow the rock south until one is under the arch feature.

On the FA day, we stayed on the flats until we could walk up a small canyon directly to the arch. One should be prepared for cat's claw!
