This is a box canyon located a little ways off the gemini bridge trail that contains four arches hidden in the side canyons and one major free standing tower.
It is a north facing canyon so it tends to be shady.
To get there drive out hyw 313 (towards Island in the sky) to the top of the gemini jeep trail. Follow it for a few miles till you see a sign for four arch canyon/cribs hole. In less than a mile you will see a cabin and a boyscout camp.These are located at the mouth of the canyon. You can drive the road up the canyon following the power lines almost to the back of it.
