Routes in Blue Moon

Blue Moon T WI2

Description [Edit]

This stepped flow is a few bends past the first tunnel on the north side as you drive west from Golden up the canyon. It's a drainage through a low angle cliff band which starts right off the road. After several days of near 0 degree temps and snow, this can form several WI2 steps. A good after work solo outing when it's in.

Note: This may already have a name as surely everyone ice hunting has looked at it and several have probably climbed it in the past. I don’t own all the guidebooks. Please correct me if so. I choose 'Blue Moon' due to the Coors Beer theme as well as the nice moonlight which guided my outing.

Getting There [Edit]

Drive west from Golden up US 6. Look right past the first tunnel after about 2500 feet (check the google map location which is spot on). It's at a left bend in the road. First step is a left-facing corner of sorts, second step is visible above. Park off the road on a pullout in proximity (south side of road, just east of guardrail worked well for me).
