This climb is down and left of the start of "Royal Arches Route", and just right of the creek coming from Royal Arches Cascade. Climb a flake and thin crack to a two bolt anchor.
From the Ahwahnee parking lot, follow the horse trail toward Washington's Column. Take a left just past the first stream and follow a climber's trail up toward the waterfall. Follow the base of the cliff to the right to find the start of the climb.
Walk off the top to the left.
Thin. Bring a standard rack. Include up to a #4 Camalot for the bottom flake.
