The other side... Often neglected for no good reason, the west side of King on the Throne is still worth the two-minute walk. A little more stout than its opposite, the west side has a number of quality cracks.

Morning Shade / Afternoon sun.

Descend via rappel anchors above Groovy Crack or down-climb to the south.

Getting There
