This is not Little White Mushroom. LWM begins in the corner 15 left left of this crack.
The crack described here has been left out of all recent guidebooks, probably because until about 1992 or so it was extremely dirty. The climb will be included in the soon-to-be-released Williams' guide, though I do not know the real name or FA history.
It is a nice little route though and about 5.3 as described. If you look closely, you can tell it is actually a small fault, not just your normal crack (look for slickensides in the crack).
Can also be used to set up a TR on LP, assiming directionals are placed.

|I changed the name of this entry to King of P, as Dick called it that in his most recent book. The second pitch described here is still Little White Mushroom, so I've noted that in the description.|
