LENGTH: 1-2 hours
GEAR: 2 - 60 m ( 197 ft. ) ropes, light rack of cams from 0.5" to 2". Extra webbing recommended, as the anchor seems to attract a mish-mash of webbing and may need re-done.
SEASON: Any. Can be hot in the summer, but would make a great evening route.
Wilson Arch is visited by thousands every year, as it sits prominently next to highway 191 south of Moab. The arch is magnificent, and often photographed, but for the adventurous, a great adventure awaits. The arch can be climbed at a relatively easy level (5.3), but with jaw dropping exposure. A big rap down the arch at the end is the cherry on top.
For those that are inclined, the arch can be rappelled with a simul-rap, but an anchor also exists for those wishing to do a standard rappel.
