Another alternative start to Royal Arches. This 5.5 chimney sees much less traffic than the first pitch of RA, so it's much grippier. Whatever, it's fun, go do it if you wanna do some easy chimney stuff, I'm just writing about it okay?

The bottom of the route is like a narrow bathtub, so it's filled with water whenever it's wet.

The Supertopo guide shows another little bit of 5.5 to the left after exiting the chimney, which should take to to RA itself.


It's a bit right/East of the 5.7 alt start for RA. Feminine Protection (a sport route) is to the right on the big steep slab.


Standard rack. I seem to remember placing a #3 and #4 C4, and slinging one of the rocks jammed up at the chockstone. You can build a solid natural anchor off that big tree above the end.
