DescriptionClimb the left-facing corner (i.e., the right side of the arch). Then step right out of the corner, and continue up the face falling a small crack with a few small trees to 10" oak tree.
A variation/alternate start to Arch of Delight, commonly referred to as Slab to Corner, starts directly below the left facing corner of Arch of Delight. Climb the slab up and right ~30-40 ft to a point where you are about 5-8 ft above the start of "Corner" and make a tricky move left into Arch of Delight. Finish on that climb.
LocationThe left facing corner on the left side of the main slab.
Walk off right or rappel from oak tree.
