Description

King Crimson is squat, but formidable 400 foot tower on the ridgeline between Firecat and Macita. The tower resisted all attempts to be climbed until the Southwest Face dihedrals were climbed in the early '80s.

Getting There

Follow the approach to the Firecat area, then continue east across one more drainage system.
