Approach


Approach to Three O'Clock Rock as described in the main page. After you take the climbers path to your left at the little boulder field continue walking next to to the rock until you see the arch looming above you. It is hard to miss the Great Arch on the Three O'Clock Rock.

Route Description


The route is directly under the Great Arch. It is the right most one of the other bolted routes under the arch. The route is pure friction and follows little nubbins and other small features. The first move off the ground is the hardest, either smear the face or use the crack on your left (perhaps a half inch piece for the crack would be good to have) and move up to the first bolt. From here almost one full length rope lead will get you to the anchors right underneath the arch. To descend do two single rope rappels, one to mid level anchors and another one to the ground.

Essential Gear


8 to 10 quick draws, one 0.5-1" cam for the first move, 60m rope (50m will also work).
