Access Issue: The Kingpin Boulder is closed to climbing Details


Left of The Perch arete, traverse from small crimps up and right across the wave-like face. Awkward!


The warm up boulder is just south of the Puffing Stone Boulder.

God, this is a travesty this is the worst guide to an area I have ever seen. Obviously, not written by one of the initial developers, but by idiots who don't belong there. Sep 29, 2002
Dude, anyone who wants to go up to climb and have fun belongs there, don't be so serious about it. Jun 24, 2003

Will did the FA and called it Surfn the Tsunami - V7. Jan 21, 2005
FYI: this problem starts matched on a sloping edge at about 6ft up, a few feet left of the arete. first move is a mini-bump into a very thin/sharp left hand crimp. Then, move to the good pinch on the arete. [This pinch hold flexes significantly. If climbing alone, pad for a sudden backflap if it breaks]. From the pinch do some stuff to gain the good edge at the lip of the arete.

You can do a traverse into this problem starting matched on a rail at about 4ft off the ground, 10ft left of the arete... the moves are awkward and require obnoxious foot work for those with less reach.

Actually, Surfin' the Tsunami starts in the low match edge about 10ft to the left of the arete. Mar 23, 2006

The crux pinch has blown on this problem (finally) leaving behind a large crimp. The problem goes but at a much lower grade (V5ish). RIP May 10, 2007
