Description

This 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 E 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+y. 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.

A short distance from the rap line access. This little line is the right side of the flake shared with Red Iguana. It has hand jams and then wider. You can layback this, too. Rap 50' or continue on To Bolt or Not to Have Fun.
