Description Suggest change

To the west of Silverton (North on US Hwy 550) along South Mineral Creek Road (FR 585) there are a number of high-quality ice climbs in the WI3-5 range. Nearly all of these climbs are north-facing and can form early in the season. Similar to climbing in Eureka, the South Mineral Creek area is exposed to high avalanche danger. Be aware of the current avalanche conditions before climbing here.

Getting There Suggest change

From Silverton, take US Hwy 550 North towards Ouray. After about 2 miles, there will be a sign for the South Mineral Campground off to the left. This is FR 585. There is usually a plowed pullout here to park at. Ski or snowshoe along FR 585 passing below the climbs.
