Description

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.

Getting There

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.

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. Sep 7, 2010

What's with the pipe sticking out of the top? Jul 15, 2007
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*** May 7, 2003
