ALG-599, Picturesque Arch, Tilenfaza Area. 9 meter span (measured). GPS 32R 264018 2453510. From ALG-594 (Keyhole Rock), proceed on the tracks southwest toward Tilenfaza Cave (a primary visitation and camp site for most tours). After about 15 minutes you come to a large eroded butte with a dome of rock on the top. The arch is visible from the tracks on the side of the butte. Note that this spectacular butte can be climbed with caution (some slightly exposed sections) without any climbing aids. There is only one way to get on the top. If you have extra time, you can try this. The view of the whole area is terrific from the top.
