Obvious, varied, and classic.


A two pitch dihedral. The first pitch contains the 5.10+ crux--a layback/undercling around a large flake. Belay in the bowels of the chimney above the crux. The second pitch tunnels up the chimney then exits out through a slot above the scary-looking roof and finishes up the hand crack to the summit.


At the far back of the Natural Arch Canyon is a long left-facing dihedral hidden from view until you are almost to Rotten Peach. It is directly across the ravine from Rotten Peach and faces south.
