Our plan was to hike up to Chaos Canyon and check out a couple climbs we scoped out last October (on our anniversary trip to RMNP). Before we knew it we were at “The Kind” boulder right below Emerald Lake and realized we missed the fork which leads higher up towards Chaos Canyon. Usually it isn’t hard to miss but this year we’ve heard RMNP has received a lot more snow than usual, making trail finding a little more tricky. So we settled on some Emerald Lake bouldering.
