Another fun two-pitch route up the center of the formation, Lion of Judah shares the first nice 5.9 pitch of Hakuna Matada but heads up the right side of the upper headwall on similar cool patina holds but at a more moderate grade.
Climb the fine first pitch of Hakuna Matada past seven bolts to a bolt and chain anchor on the face. While it's fine to anchor here, it's a lot more comfortable to continue up another 10 feet to the scoop/ledge and a single bolt belay below the upper headwall.
From the belay, head up the right line of bolts on steep but positive patina features past six bolts to a bolt and chain anchor.
Two single rope raps with a 60m or 70m rope will get you back down.
The middle of the Lion's Head formation. Identify the bolts of pitch one leading up past cool features and jugs. The upper pitch of Hakuna Matada will be obvious.
Seven bolts to a bolt and chain anchor on P1. Six bolts to a bolt and chain anchor on P2.
Heading up the first pitch of the two routes, Haku...
