This sounds more like a feature on the north side of the ridge. Well left of Check Canopy. Anyone confirm this?

I climbed the next crack system right of True Grit but it sure wasn't anything like this description. the first pitch was long and 3 stars, fingers and smaller. The second was horrificlly bad rhodo thrashing. Felt like 5.8 I have done Check Canopy but didnt walk past it Chris. I didn't see a pillar or arch on either side of the crag.
