Arch Rock and the route "The Staircase" as seen from atop Turret Dome.  Descent route is the black line.  We went the opposite way not knowing any better and had a helluva time getting down.  We did this in 3 pitches, I led P1 & P3, though I didn't place any gear on P3.  Rope drag would have been a big problem had we gone this way in 2 pitches.
