Jacob Hamblin Arch

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Looking northwest from the access route to Coyote Gulch drop in point at Jacob Hamblin Arch.  This is a very steep route and a rope is helpful.


View southwest to Jacob Hamblin Arch from a first bench a few feet above Coyote Gulch. This location is near the landing point of the downclimb into this drainage.


Looking south from the north side of the sandstone fin that contains Jacob Hamblin Arch. Scale figure provides a good sense for the surprising height and depth of this undercut.




View north from the sandstone undercut in the previous image to the base of the fin that contains Jacob Hamblin Arch.


View southeast from another massive sandstone undercut to Jacob Hamblin Arch.  A five foot high yellow tent on the sand bench in the lower center left provides scale to this hard to believe geology.  Jacob Hamblin Arch is the smaller opening in this image at only 100 feet wide.
