Easy Alpine route with great landmark finish. Rock is insanely loose and some areas are particularly exposed to rockfall hazard. If another party is already on the route, you may want to come back another day. A helmet is a must!

This is black bear country, take proper precautions on the approach.


About 1 km after passing Medicine Lake there is a pullout with an interpretive sign for The Arch. Drive past the pullout (after checking it out, of course) until you see a small creek to your left with a great view of the Arch directly above it. Park at the gravel pullout approx. 100 m down the road on the right side.


Bolted and tree anchors. Bring runners and long sling anchors.
