Access Issue: 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.
A massive boulder with two world-class testpieces, the Bush Pilot Boulder is found fairly close to the lake, more on the south side of the canyon. It is easily recognized by a distinctive left-facing dihedral on its south face. This is the line taken by Bush Pilot. A stream typically runs beneath the problem all summer long.
Getting There [Edit]
From the Warm-Up Area, trend west/northwest. You will see a massive long 20' high slab. The problems are just around the corner.
