A direct start that starts on top of Washington Column and meets Crest Jewel at the end of it's first pitch. New in 2002 Topo and beta available only online here. Great climbing that makes for a 14 pitch Crest Jewel Direct experience.

4 out of 5 stars A soft-man link up

simul-climbed royal arches in under 3hrs. got lost on the approach to the regular start and ended up doing the direct. pulled on some draws at the crux. a never ending slab. finished in the dark and hiked back to camp 4 via the falls trail. delirium set in.
