Description 

Although barely visible from the road, this area boasts a large number of high-quality routes in a very small area. You can get a lot of climbing done in here!! Of course this means that you likely won't be alone, but you'll almost always be able to get on something.

Most routes face west to northwest, and usually don't get too sun affected until well into March.

Getting There 

Park about a mile past Glace Eclatante, the huge wall of ice up on the right side of the highway as you are traveling north. If possible, try to use a parking area (Scenic View Road) on the west side of the highway (the parking area is the GPS coordinate). In any case, make sure your vehicle is well off the highway! Get the shovel out if necessary, or be prepared for a ticket.

The trailhead is across the highway from Scenic View Road, and will likely be well-traveled. 10 minutes gets you to the routes at the north end of the Ice Palace, 20 minutes to the south end.

Rock Climbing Photo: Got the first bolt . . . the first few rock moves ...

Hard Target M8-  North America : Canada : ... : Ice Palace
Climb the first 30' of Ranxerox Tangent and then move right to get the first bolt. Follow a crack using slots, holes, and edges for another 30', at which point the crack peters out. Make a hard move up and right and continue up the right side of the wall, where there is a good stance. Finally, climb a difficult left-leaning crack to a ledge and a two-bolt anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
