Starts to the right of the base of the arch on Red Arch Mtn. at some hourglass-like small buttresses. One short pitch gains big ledge above. Look on right side and gain BEAUTIFUL splitter crack in very dark varnished rock. Follow this with a bolted face climb exit at top to left. Next pitch gain obvious steep corner system capped by big roof. Climb corner, turn roof (bolt) and follow cracks to top. Descent: rappel route, raps already established. FA: Dave Jones, Phil Gleason, Jon Gleason, 1992?, freed all but two moves. FFA: Brad Quinn and partner. Easily climbed in a day, get topo from Park Service.
