climb the left side of the obvious arch. avoided major rope drag by belaying at the top of the detached pillar with a sling around it. questionable rock with questionable placements makes for a thrilling adventure

Descent Options:

raps well with a 70m rope a 60m is too short I left a biner and a quick link on the bolts.

4 out of 5 stars dont fall

obscure soft loose poorly protected totally worth while the climbing is fairly easy the hard part is convincing yourself that your hand and feet holds aren't going to explode as you move above gear in mud and behind loose blocks not for new 5.9 leaders and boyscouts but a really cool climb up under the arch Doubles from .75bd-#5,#6 optional
