Description

Bridalveil area is the home of Bridalveil falls - the most obvious and popular ice climb in the hills. There are a few other longer angle flows in the area that make good solos if you've done all the other ice in the canyon.

Bridalveil is a perfect first lead, especially since there really isn't a good way to toprope this climb. Wait until it has been cold for awhile before doing this climb - there is a lot of volume here and it takes a while to freeze solid enough to be safe to lead.

Getting There

Drive south on Spearfish Canyon road. A sign and a huge pullout on the right side of the road should tip you off to the ice, which is on the left. A 5 minute walk leads to the base. The approach crosses Spearfish Creek, but there are enough rocks to make the crossing easy even when the creek isn't frozen.
