Nice route with a lots of interesting moves including a little bushwacking. To me some of the moves below the roof seemed harder than 5.5. Turning the left side of the roof is pretty fun and totally solid. Feb 21, 2015

I would agree with DJ, maybe 5.6, and a bit runout above the roof (tri cam would work well for the left slanting seam above the roof). Good route overall. Nov 21, 2015

Looks like someone added a new bolt to this route. (or else a new route crosses over the saw ???) Oct 26, 2016

The first 20 feet of this route is much harder than a 5.5. A 5.8 rating for the sustained and slightly overhanging start is reasonable. This section is well protected.

There are two half inch diameter bolts under the roof. There are some additional bolts on the previously unprotected section above the overhang. There are two bolts with rings for rappeling that can only be reached by leading as the are not quite at the top. Near the top if you move right so that the overhang is directly below you, there are two 1/2 diameter bolts and links next to a bush. A 60 meter rope will reach the ground from these bolts. However, we had some problems doing the pull down. From these two bolts, you can squeeze through a tree, under a rock and walk to the bottom.

It's also possible to traverse right under the overhang to a 1/2 bolt just to the right of the overhang, then straight up a thin corner in a right facing dihedral, exit the dihedral and face climb to the bush and rock 1/2 anchor mentioned above. You will pass two bolts on this route above the dihedral. It's about 50 feet from the base of the overhang to the top bolts. We pioneered a new route using the start of the Arch route, we exit the arch about 2/3rds of the way up the left leaning arch. We then face climbed to the right corner of the overhang, up the dihedral and face climbed to the bolts. We called this "Arch Escape." It's a 5.8. Aug 21, 2017
