Royal Arches & Morning Mist, Yosemite Valley © ChrisJD

Crag features

The Royal Arches Area is located on the immense wall west of Washington Column, on the north end of the Valley, just left of the iconic arches.  This crag receives sun all day and is home to many long classics such as Royal Arches, Serenity Crack, and Sons of Yesterday.  


Best time to climb: Spring and autumn (also winter if not wet)

Safety warning: Sun exposure due to all-day direct sun. Be mindful of the Royal Arches Rap Route-- it's easy to miss a set of rap rings.
