Between the main (Frogland) face of Whiskey Peak and the Lazy Buttress to its left, lies an indistinct rib. Crown Royal goes up the left side of this rib.

Pitch 1: Start in a small dihedral and follow mostly easy rock to a belay stance on the left.

Pitch 2: Move left into the main corner. Belay on a ledge with a small tree that is halfway up to the roof.

Pitch 3: Handjam past one tricky spot (5.8) to the roof. Step right and continue up the easier but wider crack.

Pitches 4 & 5: Routefind your way to the top.

Descent: cross south to the main gully and descend as for Frogland.
