  • Description 

    This is the left facing dihedral on the right side of the wall. There aren't alot of short, quick climbs in Arches;...this is one of them. It's fun; c'mon;...go do it.


    1.8 miles up the winding road from the Arche's Visitor's Center.


    1 through 4 cams. Stoppers. Just eye-ball the thing, and take the gear ya think you'll need;'s a crack.

    Pretty sandy, especially the start, but very fun. Sustained and varied moves.

    Rack: 1-2 sets of finger-sized cams, triples from .5-3, single #4. It's kind of a long pitch, and it's Entrada.

    I belayed from above off boulders and bushes to the right of the route, then we strolled over to the 3-piton anchor to the left to rappel. Bring webbing or chain. Single 70m was plenty for the rap.

    Very good...for Arches.
