The Kingpin Boulder is closed to climbing MORE INFO >>>


Location: On Hank's Boulder, which is the first boulder along the dirt road as you approach the 420 Boulders. There is a single ponderosa pine at one end of the boulder which is used for the descent (it has huge nails pounded in it - I don't think climbers did it). Problem is alone on the white north face (pine tree directly to your right).

Start with right hand on obvious sidepull in middle of face. May be hard to reach if you're short. Delicate footwork will get you onto the face. Move up and go for the lip.

This grade is only an estimate.


Flat landing - 1 or 2 pads.

I saw a cool looking variation to Hank's Lunge the other day. It doesn't use the large obvious right hand hold (Jay's using it in the picture below for the standard version of the Lunge). Instead utilize small crimps on the face, somewhat left of the normal line. Some of the holds are shared with the Lunge version. The line should be fairly obvious as long as you don't use that large right hand hold I've mentioned. It looked hard but might be easier for those that are better at crimping down than dynoing.

If you're laughing out loud at the top of a boulder problem and no one is around to hear it, is it still awesome? The answer is definitely yes. The most fun problem I've done in a while. Technical with just a bit of power.

In the shade all morning. Do it!
