Description 

This is a relatively new area that is above the Uncompahgre Gorge just above the upper bridge/Ice Park building. It was created with kids in mind, but the new to ice climbers may find it fun as well.

There are at least 9 spigots above that create less-than-vertical ice from 25-40 feet in height in the WI2-3 range.

To access the top, you hike briefly on the South Park trail a couple minutes until you see a prominent, colorful sign for the Kiddie Wall access. Above, there are a few trees on the right side for anchors, but you will probably need ice screws or a second rope for anchors on the middle and left side of this crag.

This wall is a great idea.

This wall makes me want to bring my younger kids out to play.

Getting There 

From the uphill side of the upper bridge, look up. That's it.

Hike up the South Park trail around the left side to access the top.

Not a very long route but a great beginner route. The crux is near the top when the face angles out somewhat. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
