Lower Ice Caves

Colorado > Rifle > Rifle Mtn Park > Ice Cave Walls

Description

The Lower Ice Caves subarea contains a number of old moderates, such as Continental Breakfast, and one new route, the excellent Bloodhound (which is actually an extension to an old route). This subarea includes routes Bumble Bee to Bloodhound.

Getting There

This is best accessed from the large Wasteland parking lot found on the west side of the road, 0.3 mile from the entrance, just after the bridge crosses the creek. The trail is marked with a sign and is found before the bridge, cutting through what is often heavy vegetation.
