Description

A classic for sure. No moves are all that difficult by themselves but it is a long one, don't get pumped. Climb this route and stand on the king of all cobbles!
This route is bolted very well, thanks Darren! Goes straight up and uses a full 60m.

Location

Walk uphill from the Yankee routes, up a steep, loose gulley, double back a bit to the large ledge on your left. Fourth from the left on the large ledge. If you can't tell, go across the gulley and look up at the King.

Protection

14 bolts to chains

great, consistent route with a couple fun steep sections. Good rest spots mixed in to let you shake out between the steeper stuff. Oct 28, 2012

We weren't too keen on the rock quality on this line. Cool position up high but probably wouldn't climb again. Jun 8, 2017

So dirty and loose. Top 40 ft slabs in on bad rock. Should have ended this on the vert. Sep 17, 2017

I dont think the foto is showing the right climb. my fav climb at this crag. so fun. According to DK guidebook this one has a roof lower then a smaller upper roof higher to the right of the King Cobble.
part way thru this my partner dislocated his shoulder in a freak accident. had to leave 2 draws on the wall. Nov 2, 2017

This route is fantastic! Very accessible for the grade due to the steep/roof sections being broken up by good rests. Although I wish the route ended about 25' shorter (Lech's comment is true about the top slabs rock quality), I appreciate the fact that whoever set the route put in the effort to set the anchors in good rock.
