Description 

This is a great 400 foot crag right above the summer tourist trail to Alberta Falls. It is generally protected from the wind, so it's a good venue for nasty days or when you are looking for a quicker day. There are a couple easier mixed routes with ice in the big gully on the left side of the wall and a couple harder traditionally protected, mixed routes on the central rock buttress (with potential for more!).

Getting There 

Park at the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, and stay on the summer tourist trail (not the usual winter shortcut after the second bridge). The cliff is obvious right above the trail after 30 or 40 minutes. The trail is generally packed out by snowshoers, but skis are still nice for drifts and on the way out.

This is another nice pitch of moderate mixed climbing with a steep, little finish out a chimney with actual ice! We climbed in from a ledge on the left, doing the same first 10 feet of "Unknown?", but going directly up the chimney from down and right seemed better on closer inspection. It has nice, well-protected climbing. This seemed a bit "fresh" with loose rock, so I'm guessing it probably hadn't been climbed before. It is another nice choice for poor weather, or a nice warm-up for the A...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
