Two of us did this hike to the Triple Arch via direct assault up Black Glass Canyon this autumn 2011. The ravine is as described with the addition of a "snake hole" that has formed from erosion of the area. My buddy said there has been rock movement and erosion since last there circa 2001. The cat claw in the ravine was significant. We called it the "let there be blood" hike.
