Lizard King Arete is located left of Somewhere East of Fresno and Uff Da-hedral, look for the striking arete with bolts directly left of a very blank face. Easy opening moves on bolts and gear lead to a 5.10 crack system. Climb onto the arete and be the Lizard King.........


Start by clipping a few bolts that protect the opening moves, place some small Stoppers and cams after that. Move up to fist crack where #1,2,3 Camalots protect well, use slings to prevent rope drag. You can clip the first bolt on the arete with gear at your waist. Climb onto the arete and clip bolts to the fixed anchor.

Who added bolts to a route that Brent Kurtzman and I put up, "top down, of course"? What sort of unethical, dolt o matic would do such a thing. Oh well, maybe it's safer and who wants to carry all that climber stuff around anyway. Still a must do, maybe.
