Description

Kingdom Come is one of the more classic bits of sport climbing at the Fishin Crag. It's a little bouldery, a little techy, and a little upsetting that it isn't longer.

To the right of Half Hearted. Start on the arete and work up to a jug underneath the roof. Some dynamic moves and serious cranking will take you through the crux and onto the corner/nose feature. A couple more balancy moves gaurd the anchor. Just a beautiful line with engaging moves, that will require a little more than a wing and a prayer for the onsight.

Protection

Five bolts to a two bolt anchor.

alright, i'll give her a go. and you should try natural. it has great movement and is -- along with the rest of willow -- very unique for WI: steep and pumpy instead of the usual vertical techno wizardry. Feb 10, 2013

Yes, best. I haven't done NS (overhanging jug haul?) but SAM is reachy and a little weird, this has great moves the whole way and a nice little rest, I like that. Whiskey of course is classic as well but not as accessible to mere mortals. Feb 9, 2013

best sport route? better than natural selection at willow (which is practically a MN crag)? or secret agent man at gov dodge? those get my vote(s) for best sport line in sconnie land. guess I need to try this rig. looks a bit short, no? Feb 9, 2013

This is the best sport route in Wisconsin and I'm glad it's finally been graded at 11c/d instead of 12a. It's just more accurate compared to the 12b around the corner... Jul 12, 2012

With the right beta at the crux this feels more like 11c/d, at least compared to remedy, slab me silly and rain days. Very enjoyable climbing! Jun 1, 2012

All the holds are good and it doesn't seem to me that anything is fragile either. Vinny punted all over this thing the other day, it's even fun to watch this one get climbed! Nov 26, 2011

Meh, you know me, I'm into that shit but this thing climbs "sporty" so I'm just gonna clip the bolts until I totally run out of projects. Sep 3, 2011

This I definitely would like to go back and lead. A cool bouldery route the whole way. Jul 31, 2011
