DescriptionOriginally, this area was submitted so as to help non-locals figure out where to go & where not to go. No offense was intended to locals who wish to protect their local stashes of ice, but life is short and people who earn their info like to share, because sometimes "earning info" has annoyed local property owners. However, this area is well-known, published for decades, video-taped for years, published in guidebooks, and often wide-spread knowledge helps to reduce conflicts due to access issues.
From a simpleton's perspective, I just lumped all 3 areas under one category due to the nature of the original climbingboulder.com format.
These 3 areas seem to be close from a non-local's perspective. If this is awkward, it can easily be changed.
This area is fickle due to low-altitude, Colorado sunshine, and access issues. Please respect "No Trespassing" signs!. When in doubt, ask a local. Nonetheless, it is just another ice venue with gorgeous surroundings for the ice/mixed climber in our wonderful state of Colorado.
The beautiful Redstone Slabs are beautiful and would be a nice plum if you are lucky enough to catch them in the right conditions.
Apparently, there is ice in Coal Creek, although routes there have yet to be added to this database.
