BETA PHOTO: Three Kings is near the top left.


Work up the pleasant blocks above the access trail for the Upper Band. At the penultimate shelf, move left to the off-sized crack in the dihedral. Either attack this head on, or, after reaching up and placing your gear, do a strenuous layback.


The group of blocks at the east end of the Upper Band forms a pinnacle, best seen from the top of "Mindless Dribble." At the top of this pinnacle are two cracks: the one on the right is "End of the Line," the one on the left is "Three Kings."


Mostly finger-sized gear. At the crux you could use one fist-sized piece (#3 or #4 BD C4), but this is probably best protected with another 1/2 to 1 inch piece.
