Start with P1 of King's X, traversing out left after the first crux (stand-up move at 1st fixed pin) and head out left towards the old P1 belay of King's X. Proceed further left into the stacked overhanging flakes that create a bulge/roof above. Watching for loose rock, select holds, and protection to pick your way through the bulge and up onto the more vertical face above. Eventually the angle licks back and you climb the rounded arete for nearly half a rope length to the ledge. Moving up and left on the ledge gets you a cleaner, more secure, and comfortable belay.
