Future Colorado Bouldering Destinations?

Jamie Emerson has a pretty interesting post about some areas in Colorado that may hold untapped potential for new bouldering.  It sounds like working out on a Stairmaster might be as important as working out on a campus board.

    future of bouldering seems like it will become closer to mountaineering…. hike in, set up basecamp, wait for good weather, crush. in some senses, these kind of hike-in/camp-out sessions are really really cool despite the effort. on the other hand, they certainly are exclusive for folks with mounting obligations on their time.

    in any event, i hope that distant alpine bouldering basecamps and talus fields are not treated like the garbage pits of everest, etc.

    it’s good to see boulderers like glassberg and traversi sublty mentioning that they’ve been carrying their pads in and out.

      Yeah, at some point the law of diminishing returns has to kick in. I’d hate to be the person to break an ankle way back at one of these areas!

    I broke my foot “only” at the Hallett boulder. And then a ranger gave me a ticket on the way to the hospital for passing someone who pulled over 1/2 out of the road to look at elk. He didn’t believe me at all when I said I did the crab walk N hop down from there..
