A beautiful blocky route up short cruxes on the South Face of the Throne. The route parallels a large gully to the climber's right that is rockfall central. The summit ridge is a separate animal - boots, pickets, and an ice ax may be mandatory depending on snow conditions.


It's a pretty obvious line to the left of the major snow gulley.


Full rack up to a #3 or #4 camalot - full set of nuts. One or two pickets are very nice for the sketchy/corniced summit ridge if snowy conditions exist. Fixed anchors exist for rappelling and two ropes are really nice.
