Description [Suggest Change]
Here are numerous little and big ice flows (not roadside cuts) that form in the Georgetown area. There are at least 7 drainages (WI 1-4) that contain ice during cold, wet periods of winter on the north side of I-70. Some of these are even crossed by mountain goats. Many of these may get sunrotted in the sunny stretches of a Colorado winter. Use good judgement. There is at least 1 long flow on the south side above the east end of the lake. Figure out the descents in advance. Definitely off the beaten track of ice climbers. Definitely not for hard men/women. More for the exploring types.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Take I-70 to Georgetown, west of Denver. Many lines are visible from the highway. Some require parking off the highway, some in Georgetown. Parking regulations are not always clear.
