Topo showing pitches 5 through 15 of the Royal Arches Route (5.7). A true classic. Most of the route is clean and pretty straight forward. Just follow the chalk, fixed gear, and other climbers. Although it can get crowded, it's a worthwhile climb.

Looks like the 8th belay is in the wrong place, from the route I have always taken. Should be the tree left and just up from where it is. Nov 23, 2013

Did this route but we took a more direct variation a couple pitches before the crux. Anyone know what the off-hands crack to the left goes at? Jun 19, 2010
