Description 

About 3/4 of a mile down the trail, there is a nice spur trail around the south side of this little boulder that has a problem or two. Its north face is much shorter. The obvious line goes up a tiny face on jugs.

The line (albeit blurry).  Will replace with a better focused picture when available.

Erin's Route V0- 4-  CO : Alpine Rock : ... : Unknown Boulder
This line has probably been done previously, but an obvious starting jug broke off. Erin, 7, wanted to boulder and inspired an ascent by an infrequent boulderer. So, for now, we'll have a more interesting name than "Unknown" until you cough up the "real" name.There is a nice sidepull and undercling start that go to jugs on a vertical face....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Is this just Moraine Park?

Tcamillieri, I guess it depends on what is exactly Moraine Park. It is pretty close to the old Arch Rock backcountry campsite. It's ~3/4 of a mile from the Fern Lake Trailhead, where you would start if you were climbing Days of Heaven or The Wasp on Rock of Ages, Jaws (WI4), going to climb Night of the Unicorn, 5.8, at The Lost World, or walking to The Pool.
