  • Description 

    This comprises the bouldering around Emerald Lake and below Hallett Peak.

    If you want to add any problems in RMNP, check to make sure there is not an area or boulder already set up that it can be added to. Do not add individual problems to this site unless there is an area and boulder description in place. If there aren't any, feel free to add them, but make sure the descriptions are detailed and accurate for all three, area, boulder, and problem.
