Description

Climb the face about 10 feet right of King of P (crux) to a horizontal with good gear. Step up and make a few very easy moves left, to the base of the right-arching corner. Follow the corner up and right to its top and the natural path back left to the pine tree atop King of P. Protect your follower on the leftward traverse.

Location

A single pitch, located on the left side of the Williams Wall and just right of the easy crack line, King of P. Look for a right arching corner beginning about 15 feet up.

Protection

Standard Gunks Rack

If you lead 5.9 here, you will have no problem with this route and won't feel it's dangerous. Either place small creative gear at the base of the corner or make one extra easy move past the comfy ledge to something better. You don't want to blow it here but it's easier climbing.
