DescriptionThis boulder is the first one you encounter if you choose to rock hop across the lower "lake". It is on the south side of things and is recognized because of a fairly steep east face and a nice vertical/slabby north face. The landings here are generally good and the problems not too tall but be wary.
This boulder does not have the famous Potato Chip problem. That is located about 100 yards to the west on an obvious chalk-covered slightly overhung wall with a deep gully on its right.
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.
