Description

This ice formation is on the south side of the tunnel. Easy approach and TR setup/walkoff. It is short. It is secluded. It may not be worth your efforts, so go elsewhere unless you are motivated to find this and climb this.

Snowshoes can be helpful when the snow is abundant.

Getting There

The approach will only take about 15 minutes. Park at the tunnel. Cross bridge, hike along trail past a dark hut. Ice should be visible up and on the left. Take some decent visual bearings, because once in the trees, it can be harder to spy.

Addendum: After you cross bridge, go 60 feet to East and pick up trail (or follow key snow tracks on south of creek till the first major tracks South and up).

Climbed this with CMC on 12/28/2006. Just as heavy snow hits Front-Range. Conditions were very good. There's enough width for two top ropes.

On the day that we climbed, there are clear snowshoe tracks to ice. After you cross bridge, go 60 feet to East and pick up trail (or follow key snow tracks on south of creek till the first major tracks South and up).
