This wild route climbs the arete at the left side of the main face of the Pharaoh. Unfortunately once you're up the arete things get more mundane.
From the base of the main face of Pharaoh, find a sharp arete at the left side. Climb improbably up this then escape right through some bushes on a ledge to a gully system. Belay here and then up easier ground to the top. Great photo opportunities on the arete. An excellent way to the top if you're not up for Cripple Creek.
