Arch Rival is a long and epic tear up the center region of the Arch Wall. Arch Rival starts out on a slab with pockets and finger buckets and gradually gets steeper and deeper leading you through two large huecos. Don't fall victim to the funky, off-balance moves, you'll need your head for the final dash to the chains.


Arch Rival sits beneath a small limestone arch. It is easily recognized by a line of bolts running directly through two large, dark huecos.


Ten bolts to a two bolt anchor.

The route to the left of this is good too. It is not the 5.6 though so I did not send in my approach shoes! Looks like maybe a few routes between this one and the 5.6. Anyone have info? Jan 28, 2014

Long and awesome climbing through super awesome rock. Can just barely be done with a 60 meter rope, assuming you lower into the pod just to the right of the base of the climb (and your belayer might have to climb up a few feet). Definitely worth doing. Feels exposed, but also pretty easy for the grade. Mar 30, 2014
10 bolts....not 12. Also, this route and Arch Enemy do work with a 60 meter standard rappel- not necessary to use the “pod.” Lowering someone thru gear however...? Oct 2, 2018
