The Kingpin Boulder is closed to climbing Details


Walk past the 420 boulders, down an apparent trail. Head uphill towards the talus. The Tilt faces east and is defined by a steep ooverhanging corner. Stand start the corner, V6; sit start, V8 (FA: Shambo).


Chalk, pad.

Way over graded more like V6 sit start has been flashed probably V9, and, yes, I have done both. Oct 14, 2002
I agree, V6 standup (Perch feels harder). V8/9 sitdown (harder than Turning Point) Oct 15, 2002
Sitdown is called Jousting at Windmills Jul 17, 2003

I think Perch is much easier than Tilt. I also think it is weird to base a rating of V6 on Perch anyway, since it is a rather idiosyncratic climb that varies so much on the height of the climber. That said, I think the stand to Tilt is solid V7... comparable to Turning Point at Flagstaff. Nov 17, 2008
You probably also want at least one spotter since the top out is a little committing and over another set of rocks. We padded the problem with 2 large pads and had one spotter...just my two cents. Mar 22, 2009
