The Arches

Type
Part of

On the other side of the river and directly opposite Sunday Wall is The Arches.
There are at least 3 other bolted Massey routes here, done by some people from Massey who
didn’t give any route info. Under the arch, just left of Archery is the partial line of bolts
of an abandoned project, author unknown. On the other side of the gully, 7m up from
a boulder are two bolted routes, one up each side of an arete. Climb them as you find
them, as the info is not reliable.
