The Kingpin Boulder is closed to climbing Details


Start on a decent crimp rail midway up the face. Crank up from here to obvious holds and decent topout.


It is on the Mace Boulder, which is the first large boulder directly uphill from Hank's Boulder. This problem is on the small uphill face of the boulder. See the picture.


A pad and a spotter would be good as the landing is sloping and rocky.

This problem is listed as "The Mace" V4 in the Colorado Bouldering - Front Range book.

There are some small feet on the face that allow it to go without the cheater stone! Mar 22, 2016

I'm sure there's a way to do this without using the cheat stone, but it would be significantly harder, and I couldn't figure it out. Jul 22, 2013
