Does anybody know the name of this arch that is near the Wire Pass Trailhead, and High Heel and Moby Dick arches? We came upon it from up high after a fair bit of wandering up and down some steep sections and were very pleasantly surprised to see it. When finished with the hike I can find no record of this arch online. While it was very out of the way, the lack of information was surprising. Can anybody help?

I wonder what the process is for discovering and naming a formation. That is one great arch!! I have scrambled quite a lot in North Coyote Buttes and regret not stumbling onto this one.

Apparently, it's known as Dick's Arch, after Dick Kent, who first saw the arch in 1996.

I just visited it over the weekend and am not surprised it's not well known even thought it's close to The Wave. The hike up to it sucked!

I've seen a few (2) pics of this arch on Facebook now. The power of social media -- leaving no stone unturned (or 'unknown' spot secret!)
