|Lower Bridge to Scottish Gullies
An old classic of the Ouray ice park. Find this route about 150 ft below the lower bridge. It lies below a sizeable double trunked juniper. It is often a good landmark to find other routes in the area. The ice is often funky & hollow. Photogenic from above.
Fire up this enduro half-rope-worth of ice. You can bugger off at mid height for a rest on the R. It often feels steeper than it looks. The ice is often less solid-feeling than it looks as well. It can be thinner near the top. 80ft.
Longer slings to girth hitch the juniper
