Description

A good route that is harder than it looks. Climb up a brief thinner move to access the good holds and a crack and start up to the juggy concave area, where a stemming crux with off-angle holds guards an easier and secure jamcrack above. Finish on great jams then move right to clip the bolts-and-chain anchor.

Location

This climb is on the south-end of the west face of the 'King on the Throne' formation. It is a juggy and winding crack just left of the standard rap station.

Protection

One set of cams to 3"

The gear on this route is not plentiful. I placed a #3(yellow) C3 a few feet below the crack that was my first piece of solid gear. So make sure you have something to fit that pod. The climbing is easy, the gear is a little scary. Aug 16, 2011

You can find placements the whole way up, but not really anything bomber until you get to the crack up top. The climbing is easy, but unless you feel really confident at this grade/have a good head game I'd avoid it. It's really not very much fun either... Jul 29, 2018
