Description

Take a look at the huge right facing arch that dominates Stone Mountain. Instead of climbing the crack at the base of this arch follow the top of the arch arete starting at the far left side of the tree ledge.

beginning left of the Great Arch, head up to the bolt on Great Brown Way. If you aren't looking for real excitement on the Brown Way, make a few moves to the right (crux) stretching to reach the arete above the Great Arch. Once your right hand is firmly slapping the arete, cruise up to the bolted belay just out left. Be careful not to slip off before getting to the belay, a fall would likely land you at the base of the Great Arch.

Pitch 2 has you move back right to the arete then head upwards until you can make your way into a groove. Head up the groove and stretch your rope towards the trees.

Location

Atop the tree ledge, look at the Great Arch... then look at the obvious line above the Arch. Climb this arete.

Protection

Ha! this is Stone, maybe a bolt or two each pitch.
