Description 

Kung Pao Chicken climbs the right side of a small exfoliation flake at the bottom of a west-facing buttress just uphill from King Tut's Tomb. From the popular splitter Manana, walk west and then scramble uphill through forest and talus. The climb will be on your left.

Kung Pao Chicken isn't that remarkable of a route, but it makes a nice addition to any day spent cragging in the area. The left side of the flake is the first pitch of "Into the Fire", which goes at 5.9 and is quite enjoyable.

Begin the climb in a corner. About 20' up, move left to the flake on good face holds. Leaning hand jams bring you to the crux where the flake widens to rattly fists. Above this, straight forward crack climbing leads to the top of the pillar. There used to be a tattered mess of webbing and fixed gear at a block up and right of the top of the formation, but this has recently been replaced with a bomber 2-bolt anchor with chains.
