A two pitch dihedral. P1: Offwidth and chimney for about 100 feet passing a large yucca en route. Belay off gear atop a ledge below an obvious difficult spot (5.9+). P2: Shinny/chimney the narrow section above ((5.10-), or undercling/layback right around a flake (5.10+). Both variations get you re-established in the chimney above. Continue deep into the chimney past a bombay roof restriction, then exit above it on a sloping ledge, finishing up the hand/fist/OW crack to the summit.
At the far back of the Natural Arch Canyon is a long left-facing dihedral hidden from view until you are almost to Rotten Peach. It is directly across the ravine from Rotten Peach and faces south.
