Access Issue: 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.
A strong contender for the best V2 in Colorado. Start low and left on a big jug and traverse right on cool slopey holds before gaining the upper ledge system via flat edges and a sneaky sidepull. When you hit the rail about 2/3 up the wall, continue right and try not to get any 'creme fraiche' on the boulder when you do the joyous rose move on jugs. Top out on more jugs up and right. The stone is perfect throughout.
A few pads. It has a pretty good landing.
