Begin about 15 feet right of King's X and climb directly up flakes and small corners (5.11s) to a short slab and a good runner. Move up and slightly right to a mantle which gets one established on the right side of the arete. Now lieback up and left via insecure, 5.12 barndoor moves to a sloping "jug" and better holds on the arete. Climb directly up the arete, hard 5.9 with a 5.10a move at the very end. Don't bail into King's X from above the crux. The last good gear is cam just below the start of the difficulties.
This climb is easily toproped from the intermediate anchors on King's X. It was established after toprope preview.
