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.
Start standing with a good left hand and a bad pinch for the right. Move left using funky beta or your freakish strength, whichever you perfer. Follow the arete to the top or rock around. Either way you're climbing through pine branches.
From the Cube Boulder, head away from the water 20 feet into the obvious hollow between a few blocks.
