Romp out the right side of the cave to stand on the ledge by the first bolt. (The moves aren't too hard, but a stick clip is still prudent.) Head up and slightly left to the slightly overhanging face. Pull up the face on beautiful plates and pockets to a 4-star rest ledge about 3/4 of the way up. Take a nap on the ledge if you're feeling tuckered, then find the good pockets and finish up the last steep section to the anchors.


Where the Great Arch approach trail meets the cliff, look for a black streak running vertically up the face. The bolted line that goes up this streak is Beef Stick(5.12a). The next bolted line to the right is Night Moves. It starts out the right side of the cave.
