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


Walk past (uphill) the Willy Boulder, to the next boulder. On the uphill side, find the steep, crack-like feature with an old toaster below it.

If you've been to this boulder then maybe you can enlighten us with better directions to get to it. Thanks.

Walk west towards Tilt, assuming you know where that problem is.

Go back to the east a couple boulders and look for a toaster underneath the problem. I seem to remember it being real close to Tollebooth Willy and Crusher. The bottom line is until a topo is available, walk around the boulders and look for the toaster on the north side of a boulder.

Have fun.

We revisited Crusher and Toaster again this past weekend. For both Crusher and Toaster, tread lightly as they appear to be very close to be on the boundary line for private land.

Getting there is best explained as follows ... hike west to The Tilt, Fire Pit, Crazy Cody, Cloudwalker & Divergence area. From there, walk southeast 50 to 100 yards toward the Kingpin Boulder, the giant boulder very close to the cabins that has an outhouse behind it. About 20 or 30 yards yards from the Kingpin Boulder is a little clearing with a rusted barrel. Next to the barrel is an obvious west-facing and overhanging problem called Crusher. Toaster is on the next boulder 20 yards to the west, is on the west side of the boulder, also has a steep overhang to start and STILL has the toaster underneath.

Be as quiet as possible while visiting these problems and STAY OFF OF KINGPIN - PERIOD.

More like V3 (compare it to Hank's Lunge or Crusher).

I'm going to go ahead and disagree with myself here, ac, and say that V5 is a fair rating consistent with other problems at the 420s. Maybe a twitch easier than Toaster and Hank's and most definitely easier than Johnny and Hodgey, which is seriously sandbagged ... period.

Perch and Johnny and Hodgey have screwed perceptions about relative difficulty up in the 420s. Perch is seriously V7 and Johnny and Hodgey is like V47.

I am assuming it starts on the bomber undercling at the base? If so, I feel that this problem is an easy V3. Hank's Arete is orders of magnitude harder than this, and people call that a V4+. That being said, it is a fun little climb with neat features. I think it would be more classic if someone took a wire brush to all the lichen at the top. And toaster is still present as of 5/23/2013!
