Description

This route is not as wandering as the photo implies.

Climb the right trending crack to a horizontal seam. Move left through good holds to clip the first bolt. Climb straight up past 3 more bolts, then angle right towards the lower right corner of the roof (a tad runout). Plug a cam or two, and pull over the roof on good holds. Angle back left past one more bolt to the anchor. Very balancey and thoughtful movement. Good stuff!

Descent: Rappel route.

Location

Approximately midway between the Interface Rocks corridor and the far north side of the King west face. Just right of Frack.

Protection

5 bolts and 1-2 cams/slings to protect under the roof (various cracks will take sizes 0.4-2). Chain anchor.
