The first 15 ft. has fantastic jams before jogging...
Climb the vertical hand and fist crack on good rock 35 feet to the top.
Left around the corner from the Throne Proper, this is the hand and fist crack.
Gear to 3.5 or 4". Rap off trees or hike over to the walkdown behind the Throne Proper.

This route was really fun! I found the first 10 feet to be pretty difficult, but my crack technique is lacking. The gear is great; I never placed the #4 Camalot I brought up, but I found sizes 1-3 to be quite useful. I took a small (TR) fall after placing my second piece (#1) and it held. For me, this was significantly harder than Silverfish, and it seemed on par with smooth operator. Like I said though, my crack technique is lacking. I have a feeling that a little OW technique with the feet at the start of this climb might make it feel a lot easier.
