The best wilderness bouldering in the country is tucked among the imposing peaks of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. The stunning setting, wild and unpredictable weather, and beautiful difficult problems make the mountains an exhilerating summer bouldering destination. This guidebook documents not only the names, grades, and locations of all the classic problems, but the history and culture of the outstanding alpine bouldering in RMNP and Mt. Evans.
The guide covers (in RMNP) Moraine Park, Veritas, Lonestar, Emerald Lake, the Hallett Boulder, Lower and Upper Chaos Canyon, and (in Mt. Evans) Area A and B and Laying in Wait. There are over 350 problems and projects in the book. There are also essays from Daniel Woods, Tommy Caldwell, Justin Jaeger, Brian Capps, Angela Payne, Ben Scott, Flannery Shay-Nemirow and Tyler Landman, as well as an extended interview with Dave Graham about the early development of Chaos Canyon. There is an excellent essay from Hayden Miller about the unique geology of both places. There are awesome photos from Caroline Treadway, Ryan Olson, Wade David, Steve Woods, and Andy Mann.
