Comments: Climbed here on 12/7/04. Fun, but not much of a challenge. The center is coming in nicely, but it is belled out and thin near the top. Left side coming in. Right side looking good but still needs to form up solid.

Comments: Due to construction on US 40, this climb is basically out for this season, unless you do it on a Sunday afternoon. The weather has been too warm recently for this to form up yet. However, there is potential for the Mt. Russell flows (visible from the east side of the top of Berthoud Pass as you are heading East on US 40). We climbed there several weeks ago and they are coming in nicely. Depending on how it finally firms up, there may be some WI4 there (short). In addition, there is a decent... more >>

Comments: Climbed here on Sunday 11/21/04. Not bad. Still a little thin and the climbing is nothing hard, but hey, you can't really complain about getting in a lead before Thanksgiving!

Comments: Climbed here on Sat. 7/3/04. P1 was fun-easy arm bar/stem to stay somewhat out of the chimney. P2 was a little more interesting. The right side chimney looked too easy, so I decided to try the water trough on the left. Glad the rain that came through waited until I finished the pitch. I might have drowned. Pro was a little sketch, but a fun variation on the route. Maybe 5.8+? Rock quality was excellent until I found some choss near the top, very similar to J-tree. Great route overall.

Comments: Well, my attempt to farm this into a better climb this year didn't exactly work out. Yes there is a large mass of ice, but is it worth climbing? I don't think so unless you have 10 min. you want to kill. Maybe next season...

Comments: Climbed here on 2/25/04. Really warm, but the ice was still suprisingly thick. The middle section was pretty chopped, but still fun. No sign of the anchors at the top. The upper setcions were fat, but soo low angle as to only provide a minor diversion.

Comments: Climbed here on 12/14/03. Think we were on Lowe Gravity Day. Left side was in pretty fat, wet but sinker. Center is still very thin with only a thin piller touching down. Big 'cicles on overhang increased the pucker factor, but still fun on TR. Right side is thicker but required a sketch traverse to finish in the middle.

Comments: Climbed on 1/31 and 2/7. Tried to do a little farming of the flow, but the weather has not cooperated - too f#*_ing warm!!! Checked out higher in the gully and found another WI 2 flow a bit higher up. Still nothing real challenging, but entertaining for an hour or two.

Comments: Climbed the main flow on 2/7/02. A little wet in spots, but good fun. Led it up, then rapped part way down and set up a top rope. Excellent place to be in the late afternoon - then sun hits the base and makes a nice warm spot to belay from. It was warm enough that we could have climbed rock in the morning and ice in the afternoon or vice versa. Got excellent beta from Neptune Mountaineering also - Thanks!

Comments: Climbed here last week (1/16) and the ice was good, but I couldn't find any bolts to rap off of. Are they there and just under ice or am I blind? Can't beat the approach though!

Comments: Berthoud Pass/ US 40 approximately 1/2 mile up the road from the first switchback turn (Big Bend picnic area) there is a small stream flowing down a gully. About 100 meters up the gully is a small flow 15'-20' WI 2-3. Not a lot, but good for a quick fix if you live in Grand County. Park in the small pull off area on the side of the road - watch out for traffic and snowplows. Don't think there is much of an avalance danger - this is before the Stanley zone. There is potential for more ice hig... more >>

Comments: Climbed here again on 1/24 in the late afternoon. Ice was a little soft and slushy in places, also where ice had formed over top of snow, but still great climbing. Tricky to place screws in a few spots. The flow is almost down to the parking lot, so access is really easy not.

Comments: We checked out the falls on Tuesday 12/11 and it was a blast - our first Colorado ice. We toproped the center of the climb and the ice was good. We could see and hear the water rushing underneath the ice and it was a little thin in the middle, but overall it was still great. Had a little trouble with placing screws in the wet ice in places. The weather was great but it got cold once the sun set. Easy access and fun!
