In order to preserve the tree that has been the long time anchor for the first rappel into Cassidy Arch Canyon the National Park Service in Capitol Reef asked Tom Jones to install a bolt station about 20 feet east of the tree (closer to the arch). The new location is easy to reach and is much safer than trying to work around the tree. The rappel length is approximately the same. There is a small ledge just below the new bolt anchor and after that the rappel becomes a free hanger much sooner than the old line. Though you are only about 20 feet closer to the arch it seems like a lot more than that. The new location is not only significantly safer it's also a more stunning rappel experience. Hopefully the attached pictures make the new location clear. The first picture shows me on rappel from the new bolt station with others in the party near the bolt station. The second and third pictures show the new bolt station from close-up and farther away (blue circle) with the old tree anchor in the background. The fourth picture shows someone on rappel from the old tree anchor with a blue line drawn in to represent the new anchor and line of descent.
