Arch Boulder's south face (see the arch?).

Reopened after the floods. 2015 Seasonal Closures MORE INFO >>>


This short boulder is easily distinguished by the small arch it sports on its southeast corner and the crack that runs up its west face. Its small size, easy face climbs and sustained traverse make this an excellent warmup spot.

The landings are super flat and sandy, and the height usually doesn't even warrant a pad.

Getting There 

Hike due west from Mongoose Block.
