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.
DescriptionThis line starts on the left of the potato chip block, and moves right up good holds to a positive topout.
Stand start (sit down is slightly harder) on a right undercling and a left sloper, cross left to a flat crimp, move out right to a good jug. Match the jug then go up left hand again slightly right to a not as chalked up flat jug. Reach right hand up to a good crimp up and right, match then reach for a great jug. Move slightly left then top out using a good right hand in a white scoop.
