This boulder has a bit of everything good; a easy arete, a wicked overhanging highball handcrack, a traverse, and an excellent overhanging crimp problem. It gets great sun in the winter. This boulder is one of Flagstaff's finest.
Park at the big pull out on a hairpin turn 1/3rd to 1/2 of a mile past the Monkey Traverse parking. When you park you will be facing the First Overhang. Walk down the hill to the east until you see the Upper Y Traverse, then head up the ridge to the north. You will pass three small flatiron style boulders. King Conquerer caps the ridge and is split by a stunning, overhang hand crack. A small pipe sticks out of the top of the boulder.
