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 is the first problem you see when you walk up to The Large Boulder. It starts on a juggy block feature. Climb your way up the blocky jugs to the crimpy top section. Top out is a bit desperate, but just stay focused on your feet, and reach way up to a great victory jug. It is a fun problem and good warm-up for Tommy's Other Arete.
