Description [Suggest Change]

The King's Pawn is more a point on the Apache-Shoshoni ridge than a freestanding tower, but its fierce exposure to the south and west make it a worthy destination for the Kasparov Traverse adventurer. It is a long way up the hill from the Rook to the King's Pawn. Work up on ledges and slabs staying near the ridge crest. As you near the summit you can stay east of the ridge for a pleasant ascent or go west of the ridge and climb the summit block from the south to enjoy tremendous exposure.
