Ice ClimbingReally only one climb here, the Hessie Chimney, but it's a great one. Some variations might firm in a really good year.
Another route has been submitted since the original area submission.
Getting ThereDrive to the end of the road, past the little town of Eldora, and hike, ski or snowshoe about half a mile to the road junction. The right-hand fork is the road to Fourth of July Campground, the left leads to Hessie Trailhead. The cliff in question is visible to the right. Approaching via Fourth of July road allows you to scope conditions before making the final arduous approach. However, a snowshoe trail frequently can be found in the valley by starting down the trail from Hessie until you cross a large wooden bridge over the creek. Look for tracks to the right. Either way, you'll face a nasty talus slope up to the climb.
