Cliff Arch Hangs Like a Jug Handle Against the Wall of Coyote Gulch
Smallest of the eight Escalante arches that have been measured, this opening is approximately 40 feet wide by 45 feet high. The arch ring varies from 15 to 35 feet in thickness. Here two members of the party explore the steep cliff face for a way to reach the opening; lacking a rope, they had to give up only 30 feet below their goal.
