Description 

Kingdom Come is one of the more classic bits of sport climbing at the Fishin Crag. It's a little bouldery, a little techy, and a little upsetting that it isn't longer....

To the right of Half Hearted. Start on the arete and work up to a jug underneath the roof. Some dynamic moves and serious cranking will take you through the crux and onto the corner/nose feature. A couple more balancy moves gaurd the anchor. Just a beautiful line with engaging moves, that will require a little more than a wing and a prayer for the onsight.


Protection 

Five bolts to a two bolt anchor.

This I definitely would like to go back and lead. A cool bouldery route the whole way.

Meh, you know me, I'm into that shit but this thing climbs "sporty" so I'm just gonna clip the bolts until I totally run out of projects.

Cool to see this line getting some love. Are all the holds still there?

All the holds are good and it doesn't seem to me that anything is fragile either. Vinny punted all over this thing the other day, it's even fun to watch this one get climbed!

With the right beta at the crux this feels more like 11c/d, at least compared to remedy, slab me silly and rain days. Very enjoyable climbing!

Great route but more harder 11 then twelve for sure compared to the other 12's at the crag.

This is the best sport route in Wisconsin and I'm glad it's finally been graded at 11c/d instead of 12a. It's just more accurate compared to the 12b around the corner...

best sport route? better than natural selection at willow (which is practically a MN crag)? or secret agent man at gov dodge? those get my vote(s) for best sport line in sconnie land. guess I need to try this rig. looks a bit short, no?

Yes, best. I haven't done NS (overhanging jug haul?) but SAM is reachy and a little weird, this has great moves the whole way and a nice little rest, I like that. Whiskey of course is classic as well but not as accessible to mere mortals.

alright, i'll give her a go. and you should try natural. it has great movement and is -- along with the rest of willow -- very unique for WI: steep and pumpy instead of the usual vertical techno wizardry.
