High mantle with right toe.

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


A short and funky problem that climbs out from below an undercut on the southwest face. Begin from a sit and pull yourself up onto the sloping ramp. The trick on this one is finding the right center of gravity and balance point so that you can quickly reach for and grab a higher and better hold. From there, pull up and over.

This problem is funkolicious and good for laugh every time I visit. I still haven't seen anyone onsight this entertaining little gem. Then again, most people skip problems like this one, so whatever. For what its worth, have fun with it.


A pad is recommended.

Is this a [campus] problem?

Nope Andy and I'm not sure why you would think so. Just left of the downclimb for this boulder, begin from a sit-start on low holds above a tree stump. Get your feet up and do an improbable mantel that will help you snatch the next left hand hold. Easy to finish from there.

Have fun.

Careful heeling hooking the sloper.... My foot cut out and I bashed my shin horribly on the edge of the roof....

I have the same problem of shin-bashing, since the heel hook is tough to hold. Hurts like hades, but anyway, I ran into John Gill (!!) of all people one time and was asking him if he'd ever done it. He too had bashed his shin and said that he used to do it with a soccer shin-guard on. I've since done it that way, too, and it's way less scary.

The tree stump that was directly under the start is gone now. Also, I was always told this problem was called Mantle Tree, due to the mantle and the tree.
