Description

This area comprises the main bouldering areas in Rocky Mountain National Park including: Chaos Canyon, Tyndall Gorge (containing Emerald Lake and the Hallett's Boulder), and miscellaneous boulders such as Lonestar/Stinkbug. Specific descriptions are found under the respective areas.

If you want to add any problems in RMNP, check to make sure there is not an area or boulder already set up that it can be added to. Do not add individual problems to this site unless there is an area and boulder description in place. If there aren't any, feel free to add them, but make sure the descriptions are detailed and accurate for all three, area, boulder, and problem.

Getting There

Access generally through the Beaver Meadows Entrance Station though other access points may be needed, depending on the areas.
