Emerald Lake is a small area, but there are some classic testpieces. The south side of the drainage is home to Whispers of Wisdom, The Kind Traverse and The Kind. The north side has one boulder with several problems. Large and Real Large are the best, but there is also Tommy’s Arete, which climbs a nice overhanging prow, Hi Fi V10, which climbs the obvious seam to the right of Real Large, and Conquest V12, which starts to the right of the Larges as well, but climbs high from some crimpy underclings to a hard match.

This was my first trip to the Park this year, and I have conservatively estimated that I have bouldered in RMNP over 400 days. I was exhausted from all the climbing on Saturday. I climbed only one boulder, the classic V9 Real Large. Here is Ryan Olson making a quick send.

    I think that there is a typo as Olson is not that large but the individuals in the first photo might qualify. Clarification?
