Description

The King of Thrones is fun, small area in a bowl up above the town of Leonidio. The area is north-facing so it stays shady all day. A rare treat in the Leonidio area. The routes vary from steep, tufas/features climbing on the left side to steep, gray, sharper rock on the right side. The area is heavy in routes in the 6s. (5.10 to 5.11+) but there a few harder 7s (5.12a to 5.12d). The view of town from the crag is quite nice. As testament to the view, the cover photo of the Leonidio Climbing Guidebook was shot here.

Rain: Not good in rain. All the routes will get wet.
Shade: Shady all day

Getting There

From the public parking lot in Leonidio center, head west on the highway in the directions of Leonidio. Just before the sign indicating you're leaving Leonidio (a rectangular sign with an angled red slash mark across it), turn left onto a dirt road. Drive this road a short distance and make a hard right turn up another road. At the next left turn switchback, park on the side of the road/switchback. From the car, hike uphill up the road for a short bit to well-cairned singletrack trail on the right. Hike this singletrack trail has it ascends steeply past the base of the gray slab routes of Dornröschen. Continue past Dornröschen on the trail as it ascends even steeper trail up into the bowl that is King of Thrones. The routes will be on your right on the shady wall.
