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.
On the west face of the Centaur Boulder, just left of Nuthin' But Sunshine, locate a low crimp for the left hand and a poor sidepull for the right. Start with the right foot on the NBS sloper. Catch a square-cut sidepull for the right, then a crimp LH, then a pretty good sloping sidepull RH and jump for the top. Much technical trickery required for the first two moves.
