Lead the crack on the right side of the arch.Its pretty crumbly, and the exit it a jug to the right of the crack which is usually muddy. You want to put in a lot of gear before you make the crux move, and make sure that your belayer isn't going to get kabonged with the rock you knock loose....[more]   Browse More Classics in Iowa

Top rope is possible here from some decent sized trees, but it is a little bit of a downclimb from the trail and is pretty steep with a lot of mud at times. Make sure to anchor yourself to a tree while setting up.
