Description

Broken Arrow is a dynamite climb, stiff for the grade. It's well-protected, the rock is great and there's nice variety along the way. With relatively few opportunities for rest stances, this physically demanding route will test your stamina.

Starting in a left-facing open-book corner, stem/jam/layback your way up to a roof. Moving right out from under the roof, climb a steep ramp up and right to a ledge, then straight up to anchors at the top.

NOTE: There is an alternate start (5.9) and several alternate finishes; see the Dixie Cragger for details.

Location

Starts about 10' left of The White Wall. Rap from ring anchors.

Protection

Small to medium cams and passive pro; bolted anchors. NOTE: because this route finishes significantly to the right of the start, toproping is problematical. If you're going to do it, leave one or more directionals to protect against pendulum falls.
