Access Issue: The Kingpin Boulder is closed to climbing Details


Just right of the northeast corner of the Warmup Boulder is THE WARMUP at the 420s. This problem starts low just right of The Perch and ascends perfect edges straight out the north overhang.

The grade is just an estimate, the quality rating is right on. Always a blast, no matter who you are or how hard you pull down.


A pad is sufficient.

Feel free to go behind every problem description in the 420s and give a move-by-move synopsis. Better yet, add some other problems "Poudreite" ... whatever the hell that is.

Fair enough, Chad ... it's all good. I prefer to provide problem descriptions that put people in front of the problem, tell them the general direction it goes (if its not obvious), and let them figure out their own sequences.

I certainly didn't mean to jump on YOUR case in particular. Feel free to add helpful remarks and beta all over the 420s problems ... Lord knows, some people find it difficult to find problems and get around the first few times, especially when they rely on the beta on this site.

With respect to the grade issue ... maybe I've become a Poudre sandbagger .... ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Aug 19, 2003

How about V2+ or V3. Harder for the vertically challenged (less than 5'7" or so). Oct 14, 2003

This is my favorite warm up at the 420's. The grade is dependent on height. I believe it is V3 if it starting sitting on the lowest holds possible and hard V2 if it is started from right under the roof. Jan 3, 2005
