Description Suggest change

After entering the canyon via the dogwalk keep right. Hike downhill and cross a small creek, then continue following the trail back uphill where it joins back up with the cliff line. One of the first predominant features you will notice is a large detached boulder. This is the Yosemite Slab, continue past it to reach the Royal Arches Wall. Begin looking for the route Tina's Soul Food Kitchen in an easy to spot gulley as pictured here
Tina’s Soul Food Kitchen . Once you find this, the rest of the routes continue to your left.

This sector has a good concentration of routes and will tend to be busy on crowded weekends.

Getting There Suggest change

From Lovely Tower: Continue following the bluff line until you come to an arching roof with a large concentration of bolted routes.

From Dog Walk: Continue past Yosemite Slab and look for a series of bolted lines that start a top a shelf.
