NABSQNO 12S-620895-4294695 (f). Wall Arch was a fin natural arch eroded through Entrada sandstone. It was a very familiar attraction along the Devils Garden Trail, just north of Landscape Arch and on the way to Double O Arch, in Arches National Park, Grand County, Utah. It collapsed during the night of August 4, 2008, just 60 years after its discovery. A harbinger of its collapse came in 1969, when a large block fell from the underside of its lintel. Wall Arch was listed by Vreeland as number 2-12 in his catalog. It had a span of about 55 feet.
