Access Issue: Most of these boulders are within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, regulated & patrolled by the US. Details


This problem looks like it should be V0 ... it's NOT. From right on the trail, ascend the northwest arete from a stand start on a left hand crimp and an obvious right hand sidepull crimp. Every move can spit you off and this problem is surprisingly devious and frustrating, but this is a perfect problem if you're in at Area A by yourself without a slew of pads. Over the past few years, this problem has exfoliated quite a bit, inevitably making it a tad harder than it once was.

A slightly lower crimp serves as an alternative starting point for a low quality sit-start that adds little difficulty.


Chocolate Croissant is located ON the footpath halfway between the Pink Fink Boulder and the Seurat Boulder. Two smallish boulders sit almost side-by-side here, the first being home to Hollow Deception and the second being home to Chocolate Croissant, which ascends the EASY-looking northwest arete right on the trail.


An Organic or two will protect you from the tree roots.
