Description 

This is the large ridge that separates the main forks of Black Velvet Canyon.


Getting There 

Park in the standard area for Black Velvet Canyon. Follow the usual approach trail until you reach the spot where you would head uphill to Whiskey Peak. At this point, descend to the right (north) into the wash. Climb out on the opposite side and follow some trail threads west to the cliffs.

Arch Rival 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  NV : Red Rock : ... : Burlap Buttress
Arch Rival is a fairly large left facing corner/arch on the South side of the Burlap Buttress. Start in the clean cut corner and layback or jam your way up the crack. Negotiate the entrance into a wide pod and find a balance between awkward and burly climbing as the crack becomes steeper. Exit the wide pod and begin traversing left with the arch.

Anyone know what the sport route to the left of Arrow Place is? We did it and thought it was fun, just one hard move at the bottom which we thought maybe 10+, afterwards really fun 10- moves on the flake to reach the arete. Shares Anchors with P1 of Arrow Place.
