This is a subarea created for better organization. It will include routes in the New Funtier. Obviously, with an ice park, the routes will vary with spigot proliferation.
For the time being, these routes will include Reckless to Frozen World. Some of these lines can be a bit challenging to figure out which line you are climbing upon.
This area was created for the increasing need for terrain for the lower-end difficulty of the ice climber, but there is room to play with mixed terrain, too.
For the newcomer, this can be a bit challenging to figure out the routes from above.
Hike up to the ice park, or drive and park. Then go uphill from the upper bridge. Follow the signs longer than you think to New Funtier. The trail starts the same as for South Park. Count on at least 5 minutes the first time there.
You can rappel in or find the descent gully (hopefully with a fixed rope) on the uphill end. It is a bit more treacherous a descent compared with the School Room and South Park descents.
Note, you cannot get here from the Graduate School area (downhill).
Note, this listing doesn't quite seem to match the terrain from below (if you have more info, please contact me).
