The Arch Wall is a north/east facing slab of sharp and solid limestone.
This section of The Soul Asylum currently hosts about six to eight long and varied sport routes with grades ranging from 5.6 to 5.11

The Arch Wall is the second in a series of three relatively close areas at the Soul Asylum. You will know you've reached the wall once you spot a small limestone arch at the apex of the wall's north/east face. The route directly under this arch is the epic Arch Rival.

Getting There 

Finding the Arch Wall starts with a swift hike from the Simian Complex parking lot. From the cattle guard, drive 1.9 miles to an intersection, turn left and drive another 0.2 of a mile on bumpy, but ascendable, 2wd terrain to a small parking area on the right. Walk about 0.3 of a mile to a white metal gate. From the gate walk another 0.3 on an eroding dirt road to a deep and wide rut hosting cairns. Follow these east to the Soul Asylum's base.
