This is the farthest most right route on the Ark proper identified by the three fixed draws high up on the route. Start up the right facing crack, hand traverse out brown rust colored pockets then angle right toward the fixed draws.
Starts on the obvious right facing flake on the right side of ark.
6 or 7 draws to 3 more fixed nylon draws (questionable?) to a bolted rap anchor. A long runner was useful to protect before the traverse

The fixed draws from 2004 are certainly questionable.

I don't know why they gave the other line(first one to the left) a higher star value. This is the rock climb here!!! Enjoy the ride if you can't clip the last hanging draw. As of 07/10/2013 The biners looked good and the webbing on the fixed draws look ok as well. Maybe coming upon time to replace them....

How this route does not have an american flag rating is beyond me. This is the best route on the wall...Super fun!
