DescriptionStart at the same alcove as Flight of the Centurion and step out right on the face and move right, clip one bolt (shared with the route Yap), and head above the large bush. Start in the left crack and move, higher up, to the right one. After the crack ends continue up the flakes then left on the face to the anchors at the apex of the arch. You can lower off on one 70 meter rope but be careful, it is close to using up an entire 70 meter rope. This is the easiest way to get to the anchor to set up a top rope.
LocationStart in the alcove to the right of the Crescent Arch / Crystal Crescent face.
On the topo image found under "Nap Wall Area", this is climb number 5.
