DescriptionThis 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.

Fragile Alpine Area Details
This is a fragile alpine bouldering area and following Leave No Trace principles is important. Never stash pads. Do not alter landings, chip or glue holds, or remove or alter vegetation. Walk on hard surfaces such as boulders or established trails. Store your gear on boulders instead of dirt or vegetation. Clean up spilled chalk and tick marks and brush holds. Keep your presence low key and unobtrusive. Pack out everything you brought and anything else that shouldn't have been left there. RMNP rangers are very aware of the impact that bouldering has on this environment.
