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.
DescriptionThe crux is at the top. Do a long committing reach from two crimps to a jug and a crimp. Get your hands switched and then go to the arete for the right hand. Get your right foot up and stand up to reach the lip. Whew.
This climb has several stances though reversing the moves once one has gotten to the high stance is almost impossible. That said, not recommended for those without highball climbing experience.
