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.
DescriptionLobster Claw has good moves on chunky, coarse rock. The eponymous hold is pretty cool.
Work your way from low, good crimps, dark in color, on a right-facing ramp feature, and climb straight up through the lobster claw hold. This hold has miraculously remained in place, a testament to the bullet rock at Emerald.
LocationHike a short distance from the left side of the face of the Kind Boulder, and you'll see a pale overhanging face.
