DescriptionAlthough barely visible from the road, this area boasts a large number of high-quality routes in a very small area. You can get a lot of climbing done in here!! Of course this means that you likely won't be alone, but you'll almost always be able to get on something.
Most routes face west to northwest, and usually don't get too sun affected until well into March.
Getting TherePark about a mile past Glace Eclatante, the huge wall of ice up on the right side of the highway as you are traveling north. If possible, try to use a parking area (Scenic View Road) on the west side of the highway (the parking area is the GPS coordinate). In any case, make sure your vehicle is well off the highway! Get the shovel out if necessary, or be prepared for a ticket.
The trailhead is across the highway from Scenic View Road, and will likely be well-traveled. 10 minutes gets you to the routes at the north end of the Ice Palace, 20 minutes to the south end.
