South Clear Creek Falls is a great climb for beginner ice climbers as a toprope or for those starting to lead. It's about 23 miles from Creede. Look for the signs. The approach takes about 7 minutes to the top of the falls or 15 minutes to the base. Snowshoes are recommended.


This climb is so straight forward and simple, you could easily get away with 3 screws.

Toprope Protection

A large tree growing out of the creek above the falls works perfect as an anchor.
