Description 

A small formation that packs a punch. An unassuming crag with a number of great lines, the east side of King on the Throne is a nice spot with zero approach. Hard to miss, this blob of rock has a handful of unique features and lines with much character.

Morning sun / Afternoon shade.

Descent: Use a designated rappel on the west or down-climb the to the south.


Getting There 

King on the Throne is located directly across from the entrance road to Parking Lot Rock. Follow the road through the City of Rocks and head toward the Breadloaves, just after the right-hand turn for Parking Lot Rock, park in a small pullout to the left.

to the right of z-cracks and Stan's roof. Start in the cool finger crack dike, and stem up to a standard City runout finish, but on positive patina climbing. Gear appears right when you start really wanting it in the horizontals. from the last gear, you can go right or left...left is a touch steeper, but bigger jugs. Fun route!...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
