DescriptionAcross from the Wasteland is a sector of largely moderate climbs that usually gets excellent morning sun. For a good warm-up to the day's climbing, it is hard to beat this high concentration of moderate routes. The bulk of 20 or so routes tick in from 5.8 to 5.11 with a couple of 5.12 routes. Most routes are close to vertical, although expect to negotiate a few bulges and small "caves". The surfaces of most of these climbs has become very polished over time and you might want to take a rough brush along. A wet brush seems to help reduce the polish as well. Nothing is very long, and all of the routes have double bolt anchors for descent. The access trail will take you from the Ice Cave routes directly to the Bauhaus, so huddle up, suck down the java, and get ready for the crank fest just up-stream.
Getting TherePark as for the Wasteland. Across the stream from the Wasteland and just at the point where the road crosses the stream you can pick up a trail that leads directly to the base of the Ice Cave Walls. Follow this up-stream, passing beneath the first huge ice cave. The routes start shortly after passing out of the cave. The route numbering reads left to right when facing the cave.
