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.
DescriptionStart on the flat, angling jug at the base as for Right and Left El Jorge. Fire up with your right hand to the prominent crimp on Right El Jorge (and Left) and reach left to a two handed, sloping jug. Match, figure out how to release your right foot, and throw out left to the lip possibly using some intermediates to help.
This problem gets plenty of negative comments on .8a, but I thought it was awesome movement and daresay a better problem than Right El Jorge, if slightly easier. While it looks easy enough at first, the problem requires considerable body tension and good footwork (for an overhang).
