King Conquerer Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: King Conquerer
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.

It seems that either you love this problem or you hate it. Some people swoon over the overhanging crimpy moves, and some say it's the reason to hate Flagstaff.

Start on holds at about four feet high and make a long right hand reach to a sharp as hell crimp. Pull with all your might and go straight up through two side pull crimps to a jug at the lip.

The only problems listed for the King Conquer rock are the traverve and the face climb! What about King Conquer, the ominous overhanging hand crack? High quality rock with stellar moves, highball, and a rough landing to boot! Classic. P.S.: Dont top rope it, its a boulder problem!! V3***

Someone left a futon pad at the base of this boulder. As it's fine in most situations to bring such a large landing pad, it is not ok to leave any object behind...even if you are intending to come back the next day. Please claim your pad today, as it will most likely be removed tomorrow.
