A beautiful blocky route up short cruxes on the South Face of the Throne. The route parallels a large gully to the climber's right that is rockfall central. The summit ridge is a separate animal - boots, pickets, and an ice ax may be mandatory depending on snow conditions.
It's a pretty obvious line to the left of the major snow gulley.
Full rack up to a #3 or #4 camalot - full set of nuts. One or two pickets are very nice for the sketchy/corniced summit ridge if snowy conditions exist. Fixed anchors exist for rappelling and two ropes are really nice.

The route starts about 50 meters to the left (west) of the central couloir that splits the southeast face of the Throne (The South Face Couloir).
According to the 1997 AAJ, the FA climbers rapped straight down the face on the descent.
