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
