Shaun Weller leading Stone King.
A good climb, but a little harder to get to. The starting traverse makes the first few placements of gear and belay anchor critical if you lead directly from the Hemateria ledge.
As for Hemateria Left...
From the overlook with handrails below the parking lot, walk East 10 meters past the tree-rap for 'B-25' and continue another 10 meters to stop above this climb. You will see a good platform-like ledge down below you, 3/4 of the way to the water and large enough in size to enjoy the belay.
From there, start off by traversing left 7 meters to the base of a good handcrack, 'Stone King (10a).'
A rack of fingers to hand-sized gear.

There are now bolted anchors at the top of the pitch and the base of the crack, making this a lot easier to get to. Goes at 9+ in the Rush guidebook. Super fun!
