Description 

One of the best 5.11 sport pitches on the mountain, Two Kings And A Pawn ascends the most prominent face of the Queen formation. This route has amazing pockets, an interesting crack system, and an exposed roof bypass. Beautiful!

Location 

The route is on the Queen formation. Scamper up low angle rock and clip the keeper bolt. At the second bolt there is a fork: Two Kings And A Pawn trends left; Queen's Guillotine heads right.

Protection 

11 Bolts, Chains

The only bad thing about this route is that it isn't 100 feet longer!
