Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

This is an OK pitch that starts from the same ledge as Royal Perogative. The crux is down low where a shallow finger lock must be pulled with a combination of balance and core strength to proceed upward. This crack is sandy and some of the finger locks must be cleaned on lead with a nut tool.

Location

This climb is the thin crack just right of Royal Perogative. Down the hill and around the corner from the first pitch if the Royal Arches route. Just one of many thin finger cracks in the area.

Protection

Thin rack to 2.5". Rappel from slings around bushes.
