The Kingpin Boulder is on private property and is closed to climbing. See Poudre Canyon (420's) Access Issue: Kingpin Boulder for details.
DescriptionLocation: 20 feet uphill from Kingpin, about 50 feet downhill from Tilt. There is a burn barrel next to the problem (imagine hobos keeping warm).
Access: I'm pretty sure this is on public land (as opposed to the private Kingpin boulder). Keep a low profile as there are a couple cabins with 30 feet of this problem. They don't want to hear boulderers wimpering all day.
Only problem on the boulder. Sitdown start under boulder with hand pinching arete feature. Come out to hold at lip and pull over lip. I broke the hold at the lip (spring 2002) and it's now slightly harder (but better!)
Cool problem especially because it can be hard for short and tall people. Hard to reach holds for shorties but hard as hell to move those feet onto the lip for tall people. Thus, this grade is just a ballpark.
