The Royal Arch** E3 6a

Rockfax Description
14m. The first of the classic right wing E3ís. Climb the leftwards-curving arch for 8m until a vague rightward traverse line is reached. Arrange protection then move right to a good pinch, thin moves lead to a slot above and good wires. Climb direct to the roof then traverse left slightly until it is possible to pull into the scoop above. © ROCKFAX

Awesome route. The traverse is quite technical and feels committing. Worth 3 stars in my opinion
