Start off the huge chockstone at the top of the chimney at the right end of the Pharaoh.

Look for a lone bolt 30 feet straight left and a bit higher than eye level.
Climb to that bolt. (You can clip a bolt on Mr. B Meets the Pharoah) right after you step off the big chock stone.

Then straight up the face passing a few tie offs and the odd gear between plates and one more bolt.

Great exposure with easy but thoughtful climbing make this a really fun 5.8 route for the 5.10 climber.


I belayed at the good horizontal crack just below the actual summit of the tower. We then down climbed right to the chains on top of Tut Tut.
A short rap gets you to the ground on the backside of the Pharaoh.


Bolts, gear, chicken heads.

That would be straight LEFT not right to a bolt.
