|SO MANY trips here I can't remember em all. Double Arch is great. Chased off Balanced Rock (weather). Mountain Biking, trail-running, hiking, out & back to Klondike Bluffs etc...|
An absolutely awesome place to be.
Definitely one of Utah's gems.

|We came in from the back side. A bit of a tourist trap, but neat arches non the less. We hiked though the devils garden which was nice, although quite hot.|

|Been there several times between 1991 and 2008, hiked all official paths, including Fiery Furnace. This is one of the most exciting places on Earth!|

|I have been to 18 countries, 5 war zones, 2 world-fairs and have seen camels screwing in a Saudi Marketplace, but I HAVE NEVER seen anything like this place before...|
Go before 9 in the morning and avoid serious crowds!

|Got a permit from the N'tnl Park visitor's center so I could go into the Fiery Furnace. So much fun getting in and then figuring how to get back out! I definitely want to go back...|

|RhythmicMom||Great day trip!|
|What an awesome place for great photos! Did this as a day trip from Vegas many years back... I remember the hike we did was easy and very crowded, but the views and photos definitely made it worth it!|

|Benno||Three times... |
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 1993
|I've been to Northern America ('93 '95 and '97) and three times I visited Grand Junction (Colorado) where I stayed in the nice Melrose Hostel and took part in the organized day trip to Arches. Actually in 93 I took the trip twice. It is just such a wonderful place.|

|loved arches from the first moment i laid eyes upon it. it's a great place to climb towers though i've only just started with climbs of bullwinkle and off-balance towers. and of course, everyone should experience elephant butte once in their lifetime.|
4/16/11- climbed tonka tower, west face(5.8 A0) and owl rock's olvesky route(5.8) on a beautiful, sunny day.
10/15/11- climbed bubo tower's north face(5.7 R) in the twilight before rappelling into the night.
11/19/11- devil's golf ball(5.9 C1), my first aid tower. a strenuous, free jugging experience. good stuff! dark angel, dark angel....
2/18/12- pickle(5.9 C1), my first sustained aid lead. took awhile, but i felt really comfortable working my way up the bolts. the free moves at the top were funky until reaching the big hueco.
3/24/12- ham rock(5.8+), possible true first ascent w/derek. what a rope-eater of a crack on the rappel, a strenuous pull to say the least!
10/13/12- three penguins(5.10a, C1), a year long project A.J. and i finally put to rest! topping out was a rush of relief after being stumped by this monster twice before. now to bigger, tougher towers....
11/24/12- dark angel(5.7, C1), mixed free and aid on both pitches. we topped out in the dark, and had an awesome free hanging rappel through the desert night! unexpected, so cool!
dec '14- have led P1 on the west face(C1) of the gossips twice now. no one wanted to finish. anyone interested?
the question lingers, how cool would a free rappel from the double arch be?

|A great place for desert hiking. Really enjoyed the Fiery Furnace, the walks out to the Dark Angel and the Klondike Bluffs.|
