In the Maple Canyon campground area where the road turns to the north take the trail with the trail marker Campground #2 - #4. After about 10 to 15 minutes you will pass the Matrix wall. Continue on up the Loop Trail for 30 minutes form the start (the road). You will pass a sign that says Arches. Do not take that trail. Just continue up the canyon until you get to the second Loop Trail sign. You will be at the Armory. As of July 2005 there were 2 routes put up by Jason Stevens. The last time I was there, there was a 3rd route in progress. There is a single pitch 5.7 (close to 30m) route farthest to the left. The next route to the right is a multi-pitch route 5.8, 5.7, 5.easy, and 5.7 if I remember correctly. Pitch 1 and 2 are just about 30m each, so you will need a 60m rope. I donít know anything about the new route. The multi-pitch route has a chasm between the 3rd and 4th pitch which is about 4 feet wide and maybe 30 feet deep. There is a belay bolt/hanger behind where the climber has to fall/step across the chasm.
