King for a Day (KFAD) is the first boulder excellent boulder you'll come across walking along the trail from the Pond. Most problems are about 15' tall and are generally very overhung. The problem, "King for a Day" (V6) on the west corner is really cool.

Getting There 

From the Pond, head west up the cairned trail, after the trail goes over the gentle ridge and passes the Scoop Boulder, it heads uphill. King for a Day is the second wildly overhung boulder on the left, probably a 12 minute hike from the car.

Berverly's guidebook mis-labels the overview photograph that allegedly KFAD. KFAD is NOT in the photo, the boulder labeled King for a Day is in fact the Triple Mullet Blowjob boulder and the boulder labeled 'TMBJ' is not mentioned in the guidebook, though it looked like it had a good problem or two. KFAD is straight uphill from all of these boulders.
