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 >>>

Description 

The Alpenfrau tacks 8 feet of steep climbing with DAB potential onto the start for Think Mauve. Begin matched on a large shelf essentially on the other side of the roof and climb under the roof towards the start of the aforementioned problem. You will encounter some thin holds and a tough move or two before arriving at the start for Think Mauve. From there, go up to the lip and topout withSnow White.

I've been told this rig has cool moves, so if you like the steepness, go for it. I'm not a big fan of bouldering in tight spaces with DAB potential everywhere, so I've only given it one star.

Location 

The Alpenfrau tacks some steep climbing onto the start for Think Mauve, which is located 7 feet left of Pink Fink. To get there, find a shelf on the other side of the cave below Think Mauve.

Protection 

A couple Organic pads down in the cave might be nice for the steep climbing and for the finish of Think Mauve.
