that the red rock of Arches can be so solid to take cams and nuts and hold your weight, but so soft that ropes can carve an impression into it.

The summit block was much softer than what is below.

yeah - it's quite a sight to see those rope grooves. Makes you realize how delicate this material really is.

thanks for stopping by Aaron.

I agree - the light-colored summit cap seemed more "sandy" than the stuff below.

thanks for stopping by.
