|The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>|
This is the first area encountered along the trail, and arbitrarily includes all of the boulders around the Bierstadt Block (including the Willows & Dark Crystal boulders), The Ladder
Boulder, Random Progression, the Pink Fink boulder & Peasants into Leaders Boulder.
This is a great are to get started, offering numerous fun warmups like The Ladder, Thing Across From Bierstadt, Crossfire, Dark Crystal, etc. There are also a number of terrifying highballs, mostly on the easy end of the scale, though the classic Peasants into Leaders is sure to inspire fear in the hardiest boulderer. Finally there are a number of testpieces in this area as well, most notably the sequential & insecure Bierstadt, reprotedly V10.
Follow the directions for Area A. About 3 minutes after departing the Chicago Lakes Trail, you should run straight into the Bierstadt Block. There are problems in all directions from the Bierstadt Block.
