Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

This is a fun adventure, and it's legal, for it's not "a named arch in Arches National Park." Even though it's 5.3 , we chose to rope up, and we wanted/needed a rope for the simul-rappel one climber off each side at once. It's a very exciting thing to do, and you it gets your heart beating and blood flowing. Climb the spine of the arch fromt he right side, up cracks and grooves.

Location

Between mile marker 102 and 103. Park just at the arch in the pull-out.

Protection

Take a few cams, slings and perhaps a cordalette (for bushes), and your rope. Simul-rap off the top, one climber on either end of the rope; and the rope pulls right over the top through the rock and dirt. Just don't unclip until our partner is down.
