Description [Suggest Change]
Follow gully between King Pin and Queen Pin to its highest point where you can step right onto King Pin. Execute 5.7 slab traverse to the first bolt (protectable with pro). Climb face to summit. Nice route to the summit of King Pin with some interesting movement.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route starts in the gully between the King Pin and Queen Pin, 10 feet left from the overhanging crack of Quartz Jester.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Few medium nuts and small (~ .5 c4) cams to protect the traverse to the first bolt. 5 quickdraws. Anchors at the top. Single 60m rope gets you down.
