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.
Getting ThereThere are two ways into Upper Chaos. Going left around the large and tall boulder field will deposit you at the Meadow and near Eternia. Moving right around the field will leave you at the Riddles Boulder. Identified by Terrorism Arete (a striking streaked boulder that juts with distinction just to the left of the Riddles Boulder.
