The Arched Area is home to the most difficult route in Japan called Flat Mountain (5.14d/15a) which took him 20 days of trying. He climbed it in March 2003.

Getting There 

Most climbers prefer going from Route 299 following the logging road up the hill. The trail is 30 seconds from the parking which has spots for about 10 cars. After five minutes, the well marked trail splits for either the East Peak or West Peak (Center Hill Route). Then follow the signs to Rousoku Rock (Candle Rock) and walk beyond there. You'll see a red 50 gallon oil drum that marks the bottom.
