Description Suggest change

Tenmile Canyon is along the interstate just west of Dillon. This area has lots of nice easy to moderate ice climbs with casual approaches. The downside is that most routes are the bottoms of avalanche chutes, so it is only sane to climb here early in the season before heavy snow falls. Preview conditions carefully before jumping on anything here.

Getting There Suggest change

From Dillon, drive west on I-70 to the exit for Officer's Gulch. Park on the south side of the road at the start of the path through Tenmile Canyon. Most of the routes are to the west, but a few come in east of the lot. To approach everything, walk along the trail until you see your route and then bushwhack up to it(there will likely be tracks through the snow).
