Description 

The Autumn Area is a less traveled area as compared to the other 3 locations along the LRT. I dont know why this is unless it stems from the boulders being less obvious from the trail (most are literally just off the trail, but facing the opposite direction). Autumn is host to many fun lines and is bountiful in obscure classics that will leave you asking "why havent I climbed this before?"

Don't miss "Autumnmated" for steep roof pulling, and "Napalm" for a beautiful and thrilling crimp-jug throw-down. Also, "Totally Tuna" has been a favorite for many. If you really want to get in touch with some of the LRT's most obscure, try to find Zenith and the Arrowhead Boulder... these blades are worth the effort!

Napalm Boulder: Such a fun climb. Highly recommended if you are confident at the grade. Pads and spotters will put you at ease as well.
