It's been on my list forever to scramble. Looks like it is indeed a scramble?

It's really steep. With passages of loose gravel.
On the rock itself it’s a „walk“ on steep slick rock. Scrambling is only on the top.

Here are some information and pictures.

Have you seen the other ones around the corner?
We need to talk it sounds like! (Unless the you mean the snake panel upstream, which we didn’t see because I didn’t check waypoints on Gaia and didn’t read Kelsey before hiking in, sigh….). Reason to return!

Thank you, @Reef&Ruins! :thumbsup:

The feature is visited very seldom - I think so.
It has two separate names and one of them is a bit mystical.

Yes it is Winter Camp Arch in the Lost Spring Canyon area of Arches NP, that can be accessed via the Yellow Cat Road!
Most pics one can find on the internet are taken from the opposite side.

In the area are several other arches and also remains of mining operations, some still in pretty good shape.
Returning to the car from one of these arches (more east), struggling through a narrow canyon, we came across "Smiley Rock", here on the left.

You are up @Bob!
