DescriptionThis boulder forms the approximate center of the Lower Chaos area and so is a good reference point for finding the other problems. Easy to find, it's the 30+ foot boulder by itself and in between The Gobot Boulder, the Centaur Boulder and the boulder with Tommy's Arete and the The Automator.
As far as I know, there are only two independent problems on the boulder and one climb with a variation.
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 ThereApproach as for Lower Chaos. Since there are currently two options either 1) hope across the talus until you reach the Potato Chip Boulder. Keep going until you hit the Gobot Boulder and then turn right. Skyscraper is about 50 yards away from the Gobot Boulder (when looking away from the lake).
