This guidebook describes the bouldering found in the Rocky Mountain National Park and Mount Evans. These areas are tucked away amongst the imposing peaks of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, and offer some of the best wilderness bouldering and climbing in the United States. The guidebook covers; Moraine Park, Veritas, Stinkbug, Emerald Lake, Hallett Boulder, Lower and Upper Chaos Canyon in the Rocky Mountain National Park (gneiss rock); and Bierstadt Sector, Pink Fink Sector, Silverback, and Dali Wall Sector at Mount Evans (granite rock). With the stunning setting, wild and unpredictable weather make the mountains an exhilarating summer bouldering destination.
At the start of each section (Rocky Mountains and Mount Evans) there is a detailed overview map, approach information and general logistics information such as camping areas. In total the guidebook covers over 350 problems and projects from both areas. All the problems are shown on colour photo-topos and colour boulder maps. The guidebook also has a fantastic tick list with all of the names, grades, and locations of all the classic problems along with a star rating.
