Description

11th Hour Gulch has a wonderful natural curtain of ice, and in some years kind souls have farmed ice on the opposite side of the narrow side canyon. Toproping access is easy, and the routes are good intermediate leads as well. The well featured rock would make for fun mixed climbing.

Getting There

Pass Bridalveil Falls while heading south through Spearfish Canyon. Keep a sharp eye on the right side of the road - 11th hour gulch is a narrow side canyon only a few feet off the shoulder of the highway. The ice is visible from the road - it is only a few hundred feet away and about the same level as the highway. Pullouts exist both before and after for parking.
