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.
DescriptionPerfect slopers on a gently overhanging face. An absolute classic, perhaps the best 9 in the Park! Start on the UNDERCLINGS! Confirmed with DG.
Beta. Start on the underclings. Negotiate a match on the square cut sloper and reach up to a suprisingly good (but small) crimp. Left foot up on a small point, toe hook underneath the roof and hit the first sloper left-handed. Reset the toe hook higher and bump to a better sloper. Match. Release Toe hook, right foot on square sloper and go up to another sloper. Left foot on the large sloper feature out left. Reach up to a decent gaston. Match feet on the square cut sloper. Right foot on a loose block (yes in wobbles) either bicycle with your left underneath (or use the higher block if you don't like the loose block) and reach up to a decent crimp/pinch. Left drop knee hard on the second sloper and reach a slopey gaston above the roof almost parallel to the your left hand. Bump to good holds. Move left to a good hemhock. You can get a knee bar here and shake. Pull up to the second lip and traverse the boulder to the left. Pumpy.
Four stars for perfect landing, great movement, good holds, and aesthetics of the line itself.
