BETA PHOTO: King Phillip's Face.

Description 

Start squeezed in between two small trees and the face. Climb straight up for about 10 feet then start angling up and to the right, aiming for an obvious (crumbling) jug on the overhang. Pull the overhang on positive holds, and then top out slightly right on a series of slopers. This is a good climb that unfortunately has some poor rock quality.

Location 

This is the first route on the Buoux Buttress on the north facing wall as you approach from The Slab.

Protection 

TR off trees.

I don't know about 5.8 on this one. I found it quite a bit harder than Indian Summer ArÍte (5.9) and the other .8s on this crag.
