Description 

This is a subarea created for better organization. It will include routes in between the bridges. Obviously, with an ice park, the routes will vary with spigot proliferation; however, much of this terrain has already been filled in, but then again, there are bolts for mixed routes.

For the time being, these routes will include: Extreme Dream to Wildebeest.

This area is the tightest section of the canyon, so very little light enters this section. Also, open water at the base can soak unwary ropes or climbers. Be prepared.

Getting There 

Hike up to the ice park, or drive and park. Then go between the bridges. Most of the uphill area of this section is designated for lead climbing only. Most everyone will need to rappel in to climb these routes; however, if you're down in the canyon below the lower bridge, you just might be able to tip toe up to the ice...but I wouldn't count on that.
