Fantastic route, and quite varied in its moves. The iron cross crux was just as hard for me as coming over the mini-roof after the slab, and even harder was fighting the pump to make it up to the cave rest. I hope this route stays intact, however, since I noticed that two key holds had been cemented back on, and I even broke a part (not the good part) of the undercling at the first mini-roof. Regardless, BB King is well worth the time.
