This is the approach pitch for Fallen Arches, however, you could certainly climb just this if you are looking for something super easy. The route follows the obvious corner fist crack just below Fallen Arches and the crux is encountered near the beginning where the crack is the steepest. Once through the crux, continue up the broken section through the scrub oak until you reach the left angling ramp leading to the base of Fallen Arches. Sling the big tree for an anchor and bring up your second.


This route is the obvious easy looking corner to the right of Pins, Bashies, Matches and Beer, and shares the start with St. Alphonso's Pancake Breakfast. Rap off the anchors for those two routes which can be found on the edge of the ledge just below the big tree that you use for the anchor.


A standard rack should be way more than sufficient for this route, really one or two pieces in the hand to fist range should be more than enough to make most people feel very comfortable. Sling the big tree for an anchor at the top, and get down by rapping off the anchors for Pins, Bashies, Matches and Beer.
