Begin about 30 ft. right and up the gully from Triumph Arch A chossy start is somewhat reedeemed by steep face climbing on orange patina past 2 bolts to a traverse right across a horizontal crack (.5 to 1" CD) then up a vertical crack in silver rock past a bolt to face climbing past one more bolt up to a unique narrow ridge. 2 bolt anchor with chains (100 ft. rap). Once on top, scramble over to the rarely visited summit of the King Dome, and its panoramic view. One or two out of five stars.


4 bolts, .5 - 1 inch cds. 2 bolt belay/rap anchor with chains. 100 foot rap.

It's really 100% Bob's route; I just followed it. But quite good route, actually. Fairly steep and "interesting."
