The route starts between Black Flies and Greenpeace and follows a diagonal line to the Great Arch. Anchors are just below the roof.
Start in the somewhat dirty corner with rotten rock. Follow cracks up and left to a less steep terrain. Traverse left to bolt. At the bolt climb straight up the corner (crux) to gain finger crack. Layback crack to the anchors.


The route is located between Black Flies and Greenpeace and starts under the middle of the Great Arch, in a somewhat dirty corner.


From midsize cams to small cams. One bolt in the middle (crux). There is new 2 bolt anchor on top.

Randy and David, please feel free to correct my description. The difficulty rating is what Mark told me you told him :). I think it's harder than 10b because of couple moves at the bolt. Aug 5, 2011

The bottom starts up a short bit of very easy funky slabby crack before you get to the bulge with the small corner. The rock is somewhat crumbly here, but the gear looked OK. The moves are relatively easy here too. Once through this bulge, the rock quality goes way up through the fun crux and upper corner with its nice layback finger locks. ..a good route, with the only down side being the short crumbly patch. Another going over with a brush and scraper would do it wonders, but well worth getting on in it's present state. Aug 5, 2011
Hi Dima, Thanks for adding the route. Lets go with Bull Run for a name. Go with what ever you think is appropriate for a grade. Aug 24, 2011

Definitly harder than 10b/c. Not sure how hard though as I couldn't get the move past the bolt :) Aug 26, 2013
Awesome climbing! A baffling slab crux to a manageable, but strenuous finger crack. Ray Rice's new direct start provides a better entrance and straightens out the line a bit (5.11b). Sep 10, 2018
