Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Another steep slab route on the Royal Arches apron with long runouts between bolts on small, sometimes friable edges.

Location

About 200-300 feet uphill(north) of 1096 and just right of Move Like a Stud. Climb 25 feet up to a ledge and clip a bolt on its right edge. Make a 5.10 mantel move onto a sharp edge and clip the second bolt. The crux is 25 feet of thin climbing to a small pocket and a third bolt. The climbing eases a bit past two or three more bolts and the anchor.

A double rope rap reaches the ground.

Protection

Five or six bolts to a two bolt anchor. The ASCA replaced the bolts on this climb in the mid-2000's. Thanks to Clint and Roger.
