About a week or two ago there were some news about a new bouldering area located in Rocky Mountain National Park. I was not really sure where it was located exactly so my plans for the weekend were to go and hike back to Emerald Lake. Unfortunately the weather has been terrible ever since Saturday, raining and snowing all week so it changed the plans. Tom C. and I decided to head and check out Endo Valley which was very easy to find and start climbing. That place is at lower elevation therefore climbing was possible. Thankfully to Jamie’s blog we were able to locate the boulders that had been already established and climbed. The area is really compact and has some great potential. Below are some photos of few boulders we got on. Also check this article by Jamie about something else we established that weekend.
