Description

Arch Enemy is an enhanced verion of Arch Rival. Starting out on a more demanding, intense slab, Arch Enemy climbs through low angle terrain via shallow pockets to a steep head wall. Be quick while firing through this bulge or the pump will sneak up, hold on tight and dig deep, perseverance can be a wonderful thing. Catch a good rest after the crux and tip toe to the chains.

Location

Arch Enemy is the middle route below the wall's only arch. It is also the first, left most route to ascend the steep and colorful upper face.

Protection

12 bolts to hangers.

A bat was spotted living in one of the pocket hand holds, use caution, bats carry rabies and shots are expensive! Aug 21, 2017

Hey folks:

I was climbing by the Watchtower on Friday, 17 April and lost my wallet. It's a slim, black, bi-fold with a Washington ID, Chase debit card, YMCA membership card, and other misc stuff. My name is Kevin P Sullivan. If you find it please email me: kpsully2005@gmail.com. I went back today and didn't see anything.

I climbed the following routes, and it could be anywhere around these places:
Afterlife, Free Spirites, Petrified, Blood Drive, Myogi (it's in the Todd Goss book, some 11d above the fixed line on the right most arete with giant huecos) Arch Enemy, and Righteous Indignation,

Thanks in advance! Apr 18, 2015

Wow. One of the best routes I've done in a long time.

Slabby section to a really cool portion with weird cobbles embedded in the limestone, followed by bulletproof headwall on some amazing holds.

A 60m rope will work, if you lower into the pod just right of the route. Mar 30, 2014
I agree with you there. This one and then one next to it are just plain awesome! Mar 5, 2012
