Red Byrd Arch trip Via Ridgetop ...12-20-08 trip report
A Creek Runs through it

Ledford arches are on the ridge top above Pinch Em Tight Gap. They can be reached by taking Pinch Em Tight Trail to Rough Trail. About 175 yards to the left of that intersection is the way to go. The view from THE POINT is similar to Auxier Ridge. This is a HIGH CLIFF area. Caution is recommended. The arches are just SE of the point. A 15 ft rock scramble is about 50 yards before Ledford West arch. You'll need a bit of luck if you go searching for these beauties.
