Start as for The Arch. Instead of traversing right, climb straigh up (unprotected and difficult) to intersect The Arch at the thin crack. Traverse under the overhang to its left end, then up to the top past a large tree. Alternatively, climb straight up from the left side (5.8).

Descent Options:

Gully to the right.

Not sure the description is correct. Went straight up to the arch (unprotected if done in the lead as stated in the despription), then worked to establish myself straight up over the arch where there is a thin crack and old piton. Nice route, but wet when I did it.
