Description

Dexter Creek slabs is a great place to do some multi-pitch ice climbing on moderate ice. The entire area (including the lower section) is close to 500 feet of fat ice. The slab is good early to mid winter - a great place for some first leads.

Getting There

Before Ouray on Highway 550 turn left onto county road 14. Continue on this several miles, taking a right turn at a fork in the road. Park as far as the road is plowed, and take the trail up to the slabs. They are visible from near the parking area up on the hillside.
