  • Description 

    Beautiful right arching dihedral to under cling roof, on impeccable dark orange granite. Crack in dihedral goes from perfect hands to tips. When roof peters out it is possible to continue up Original Route face or back up and left on grassy ledge/flake system.

    Location 

    Cougar Crag West. The Black Arch is obvious right trending black arch in the middle of the main wall. It starts just right of the Dirty Dihedral.

    Protection 

    Standard Rack. Original Route bolted anchor.
