Although there is an easier way to visit the Large Rock Arch this circular walk includes the Little Rock Arch and a traverse along the northern slopes of Aixorta. Both arches are geological curiosities and probably formed by a harder part of the roof of a cave the remainder of which has fallen in. The initial ascent to the Little Arch is arduous and can be mitigated by taking Variation A. To reach the Little Arch pathfinding skill is useful but not essential as the ground to its SW is generally passable with care. The descent to the Large Arch is steep and requires care.
70% on tracks, (some muddy after heavy rain) 30% on mostly rough paths. (Good boots are necessary to visit the Little Arch). Gloves and snips are often useful on the goat path up to the Little Arch.
