Kingspitze is a classic climb of the Engelhörner, it must have been an epic in 1937. The stances are well bolted and most pitches have 2 or 3 bolts, but the climb is not to be underestimated. It is 700m of climbing up vertical limestone. Although never really hard (F5c+ free) experience in route finding, especially for the descent, is necessary if it is to be completed in good time. The 150m of grade 3 scrambling to the first stance has a couple of belay spots and is best done "Alpine style" with a rope, unless you are familiar with the route.
The summit is fantastic, sitting on top of a 500m needle, and well worth the effort.
