As of 7/18/15, this route appears to have been further developed.

An anchor is visible floating in space near the lip of the Arch's roof and with binocs and a long zoom lens, I count 7 bolts leading to it across the ceiling (Presumably with a few more on the face leading back down to the second anchor).

So, does anyone know...
  • Anything about what the roof pitch? If it's even had an FA?
  • What the difficulty of the face extension is?
  • If the 1/4 inch deathtraps of the extension have been replaced?
