Description 

This area is a nice cirque just west of the town of Alice and St. Mary's Glacier. I have been here a number of times, and it tends to be a secluded area, and most anyone who goes there is there for hiking; I have never seen any climbers, but despite that there is a large abundance of bouldering and single-pitch and multipitch climbs to be done. The rock is pretty sharp and can be rough on the hands. Due to the area being new and in the alpine, it is wise to watch out for rocks.


Getting There 

Take I-70 west to exit 238 (Fall River Road, St. Mary's/Alice), the first exit past the town of Idaho Springs. Go north, and follow this (Fall River Road) up past two sets of switchbacks and then a bit farther into the town of Alice. Go left on Alice Road, a dirt road, and follow this to the top of the hill. On the right there will be a gnarly little four-wheel-drive road called Stewart Road, and a sign stating the distance to Loch Lomond. Since I don't have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, I have walked this road numerous times, but it is highly recommended to drive this road if at all possible. Follow the road until it ends a lake, Loch Lomond. On the south side of the lake there is a trail headed up to three other lakes, and the cirque of Loch Lomond.

Near the Corner of the Corner Area, go up a small dihedral near the start. The crux is probably a move or two before the top. We cleared most of the bad rock, but still be careful....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Thin fingers on the graffiti strewn boulder close to the lake.  You can't miss this Boulder.  Finger crack goes at approx V1 until you reach the top out, which is V4th class. :-)  There is no walk off.  Downclimb the boulder.

As you approach Loch Lomond, you will pass this boulder on your right.  The problems I did were all in the V0 range.  Water surrounds parts of the boulder where harder problems exist.
