Access Issue: Ice is on roadcuts off of Hwy 151. Details

Description [Edit]

This is a 100 ft wide swath of blue ice that comes in on a 60° road-cut, and offers some fun climbing on low-angle terrain. The top of the ice is a ledge densely packed with trees that are 1"-3" across. You can sling the trees (or rap off them), or push your way through them for more adventure.

Above the ledge, you can climb a couple of 15 foot "rock" steps on crumbly sandstone - more sand than stone - followed by a 60° snow slope that climbs almost 100 ft to the top of the road cut. You can walk off left at the top, towards your car.

Getting There [Edit]

See location information for Dickeyville Ice. The slab is on the west side of Hwy 151, directly across from Airport Rd. Parking is a half mile down 151 (heading towards Iowa), near an auto body shop.
