Description 

This rock is the second major Chessman (from north to south) on the Kasparov Traverse, after the White Knight/Knight's Pawn formation. Stay east of the tower on ledges, then climb a well-featured wall and crack system on the east face of the tower. Exact route is a matter of choice, but it is possible to climb the route at the F4 (5.0-5.2) rating with some routefinding. The summit of this tower is regal and the views divine, particularly to the south.

Light rack if necessary

8-31-08: these were wonderful features to scramble and climb. Brian Verhulst made a new route (variation) by climbing a 5.10 finger/hand crack on the far right side of the Queen.
