Close to the Arch, there lies a good, albeit short hand crack that splits a column shaped formation just south-west of the main route going up the Arch's south face. This crack remains predominantly in the shade and provides a nice traditional alternative to climbing the arch's backside, which is most often piping hot in the sun.
The rock is corral-esque so good rope management is advised to prevent frays. We also noticed a rather large colony of bats live deep within this crack. Be wary not to stick one's hands too far into the good jams and taunt these screeching little guys.


To approach the start of this route, one has to creatively climb several trees, squeeze through a slot, and scramble up some 4th class terrain. One can use the crack as a landmark.


Standard rack. There are rappel anchors at the top left by the unknown first ascensionists.
