Glad you two малодец's are good and well, (I would kill for a cyrillic keyboard! if I could see the keys I could just make my normal spelling mistakes.) Ochen cool effort none the less! I'd go back there with you guys, Anytime. Somehow this one never appeared on my radar.

I've heard scuffy talk about going there, but never saw this story or the pic! It looks really nice.

It really is worthy, especially for about 60 feet.
I stopped at what seemed a sensible spot to me, about 90 feet up.
there was a good sling around a pretty thick scrub oak, one biner, I added
one. It didn't look (to me at the time) so great to go all the way to the
top of the rock.
The rock quality is stellar through the meat of the climbing.

approach for The Bin is pretty long, longer than you can expect looking in the book disposition.
The is another route 10d ow at opposite side of the Arch next to Julette's Flake called
Extra Credit ( FA W. Shipley and W.Brawn )- 10d ow 5' no stars .
Anyone had a good memory from this climb? Approach for the base of the climb can be harder than the climb itself

Here's two views of the Bin at Arch Rock:

I seem to remember after the OW crux that you tunneled through a chimney sideways and grunted to the top where you emerged on the summit next to a little tree that we rapped from. The cave you chimney through is the eponymous garbage 'bin'. Plenty of bat guano.

You've got to remember that we were up there in late winter/early spring when the hike up was not so broiling as it can be. Really, a nice place to stay warm.

Sweet! It's on my list for this winter now. There's a lot cool looking stuff on the outlying cliffs above and around the main Arch Rock face.

Missed the tunnel, Bruce. Maybe that is where we stopped going up.

Alexey, regarding Extra Credit, there is speculation, from Werner and from
Ron Kauk, that it may not have a second ascent yet.

If anybody's done it, they've kept it pretty quiet.

Cool thread. Thanks for bumping it, Ed, because I missed it the first time.

I believe GRE and Extra Credit both have not had second ascents. So while you're up there enjoying yourself on the Bin, take a look next door to the left and have yourselves some more "fun".

those look like quality, hiked over there the other day. looks like skateaway (10a) would be a good warmup as well

Not sure how I missed this post. Did this with Bruce Morris. I think we did three new routes that day at Arch - Dirty Little Secret, Skateaway (onsite solo!), and The Bin. We did The Bin last and it was getting dark after cleaning the thing. I didn't want to hike back up the next morning so we climbed it in the dark. I think we both got it first go. I didn't think it would ever see another ascent, so it's good to see at least a few people have been on it.
