DescriptionThis great moderate route goes up the prominent notches on the North side of Arch Rock.
Start the climb by finding the low angled dihedral below the notches. This first pitch is interesting, with actual moves and great protection. Hold up a nut and the crack will swallow it. Make a belay on the prominent ledge below the steeper, upper part of the climb. Take heart, the climb is easier than it looks. Enjoyable stemming, and crack climbing takes you up the obvious "steps". Above the steps, step left onto easier ground or follow the 5.8 OW section to the summit.
