11th Hour Gulch has a wonderful natural curtain of ice, and in some years kind souls have farmed ice on the opposite side of the narrow side canyon. Toproping access is easy, and the routes are good intermediate leads as well. The well featured rock would make for fun mixed climbing.
Pass Bridalveil Falls while heading south through Spearfish Canyon. Keep a sharp eye on the right side of the road - 11th hour gulch is a narrow side canyon only a few feet off the shoulder of the highway.
