White Knight.


The first of the Chessmen encountered on the Kasparov Traverse. Traverse on ledges to the east side of the tower and find a clean 4th-class face with ample holds leading to the saddle between the White Knight and the Knight's Pawn. Follow the easy ridge to the top. A good side trip on any Shoshoni-to-Apache traverse, without too much commitment. Easily combined with the Knight's Pawn.


Light rack if needed. No anchor on top.
