BETA PHOTO: Icebreaker


(1) Climb a low-angle dihedral on the west side leading up to a notch and belay below the massive prow. (2) Move up to the base of a ramp which diagonals right directly below the overhang. Layback up the exposed ramp (5.10) and turn the corner to find a large (and welcome) block which gives access to the summit.


The Icebreaker is the overhanging buttress just south of the Sandstone Bluffs Overlook. It can be approached from the Overlook by descending to the west, then walking south, or from Hwy 117 (across Acoma land).
