3 out of 5 stars Apparently the correct route name is King of P...

and rumor has it that it will be in the next Williams guide book. Supposedly it also has a 5.6 2nd pitch. I climbed only the 5.3 crack first pitch as my first lead. Nice moves, great pro. The crack is a bit shallow, though, so I used a lot of face holds.

10/24/2005 - Led the pitch on a cold autumn day. It felt good to push through even in the wet sections, and use jams of various sorts.

8/16/2005 - Seconded on this one, dirtineye led. It is absolutley a "must do" for a lead. it's pure crack, but lots of face holds for those who would rather not..... but an excellent chance to practice jams of all sorts, all the way up.
