DescriptionOkay, this is going to tickle a few of you out there to say "what the...." This area has been notoriously tight in coughing up information on rock and/or ice. Once, there was even a Colorado Springs website which hosted a bit of information on ice. Well, some of it has been added to the database. Some is already in guidebooks such as Cameron Burns' delightful Colorado Ice Climber's Guide, Colorado Springs Area p. 217-220. So, everyone is secretive about the ice, but as my youngest child is taught in preschool, "let's share."
Within C. Burn's guide are:
Silver Cascades, WI2, 2p.
Green Mountain Falls, WI1-2
Gillette Falls, WI2-5, check out access issues 1st.
There likely is more ice in the Cheyenne Canyon drainage with the right conditions.
Blind Assumption, 300-1000'
The Ole 6, 4p, 450'
Total Abandon, 3p, 400'
Y Couloir, 2000' vertical
North Cheyenne Canyon:
The Phantom, 80'
Buried within our database is even two comments one
then and two about Helen Hunt Falls, and now Saint Marys Falls.
