Description Suggest change

A fun route; a classic, if combined with P2 of Wrist.

P1 - Climb the right-facing flakes on the lower arch and continue up an easy but runout face to a dirt ledge about 30' up. From here, aim towards the easiest exit out and over the arch on the right (optional belay after exiting the arch). Follow easier climbing right of the tree, then move left below the next tree and straight up to the GT Ledge. 160', 5.5.

P2 - Look right and climb the face to a notch in the shallow part of the roof (the right-hand side of the roof. The left is Wrist). Head straight to the top from there and finish in the right-facing corner and crack.

Descent: Walk right and down to a bolted rappel route. Three raps with a 50m rope will get you down.

Location Suggest change

The Arch access trail is about a 4-min. walk from the Uberfall, where the East Trapps Connector Trail meets the carriage road. At the cliff, walk left past Strictly From Nowhere and Ribs until you're under the huge arch about 70' up the wall.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack. Many trees as anchors.
