Description 

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.

Getting There 

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).

Featured Route For New Funtier
Anyone know if this is Miller Time?  Later: Thanks...

Miller Time WI3-4  CO : CO Ice & Mixed : ... : New Funtier
Good routes here, we did 2 without moving the anchor, and you can direct the rope over the top of the flow for the steepest choice. Guides lock this up on weekends. (But we asked and then climbed while they were occupied on other routes.)We did a nice flow right under the prow, WI2, which comes up directly to the tree. Then you can move left for a steeper climb. Then you can throw in a screw or carefully direct the rope over the top and get the rating they give on the map. All fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
