The Kingpin Boulder is on private property and is closed to climbing. See Poudre Canyon (420's) Access Issue: Kingpin Boulder for details.
DescriptionThis problem tops out on the southwest corner of what I referred to as the Chucky Boulder, although it may have another name. Anyway, find the BIG boulder up the creek from Johnny and Hodgey and it should be obvious.
Begin via a fun sds around on the southwest face that moves up, then right across slopers to join the arete about 12 feet up. From ther, climb the arete using holds mostly on the south side and top it out ~ 25 feet up. This highball has great solid holds after the difficulties down low, so don't let its ominous size scare you away ... its awesome baby.
