BETA PHOTO: The Kingdom, showing the major boulders

Description 

The obvious set of massive, building size boulders on the slopes above the campsites.

Getting There 

Although you can go straight up from the campsite, sliding into the main corridor under Zanzibar; It is easier to walk up the trail toward the split boulder, cut uphill past the Kingdom, then cut back in past Scrambled Egg and enter from the right.

Kingdom of Zilch rocks! Offers the easiest access to a wide range of climbs. 5-10 min approach from the parking lot. Sun in the morning, shade in the afternoon. Many opportunities to esacpe the sun regardless of time of day.
