Purlin Arch (near Tibbett)
From where the Ernie’s country route crosses the wash containing Tibbett Arch, hike up-canyon for about 2.8 miles. About 1.5 miles up the canyon, take the right fork (the left fork leads to Wall Runner). You will see an open canyon area on your right (east). You will also see the sweeping grace of Tibbett Arch. Look high in the north wall of this opening for Purlin Arch which is in a direct line connecting Tibbett, the solitary pillar in the opening, and Purlin. The viewpoint for Purlin is at UTM 12S, 586970E, 4223886N, WGS 84, and Purlin is about 200 ft. north of this viewpoint.
