single set of cams and stoppers. (i brought double) 1 #5 and an extra #3 camalot. be sure to have a couple small cams and small stoppers. slung boulder on top. single rope rap. easy to top rope. beware of loose rock.

[Hide Comment] this one gets a short paragraph in bjornstad's desert rock, national parks, page 156. super fun mini adventure. we all had a grand time. one of the better views in the park. my partner called it 5.9+++ old school. on most of the approach it is possible to avoid the crypto. does not see much traffic. nice alt if owl and bw are crowded since it does go free (but harder).

[Hide Comment] The summit cord is in good shape as of 7/15. Pretty good rock for Arches. Jul 8, 2015
[Hide Comment] Better Rock than we expected. We used .75, 2x 2s, 2x 3s, 2x 4s, and added a chord to the anchor on 10/1/18. A five or six would be useful. Oct 14, 2018
