Description:

There are two cliffs. The trail you take to get to this area goes down between the two. This climb is on the cliff to your left (as you face the two cliffs). Start 140' left of the gully (where the trail is) at a large half-circle white spot at ground level. Head up a black slab with good holds to a ledge below three cracks. Head over a bulge and straight up to another ledge to a cluster of cracks. Take a right-rising crack system to a steep wall. Get yourself over this on buckets to the top. (Instead of this right-rising crack system, follow a left-leaning crack out of the cluster to a left-rising ramp to the top. This makes the climb a 5.2). This info comes from the guidebook.

5 out of 5 stars Good starter climb

Good for starting the day I reckon. The entire cliff is a huge toprope area, so it gets crowded... Fun place though...

This is a great climb. Honestly, King Philips Spring has a wide array of climb options. While there are not many climbs recorded, have fun. Play around. Both the left and the right cliffs have great options.
