Description

This is a Sweet Colorado ice climb. Start with a bit of scrambling to a bench/alcove that will protect belayer. Climb a steep and a bit long waterfall ice. Protect with rock pro and ice screws. Top out into trees. This is brilliant, it is a must do.

Per kevin donald: this climb was named for Choppo, my nickname for Charlie Fowler.

Protection

Small/medium nuts & SLCDs, ice screws, runners and draws, and half (double) ropes will do. There is a slung tree from which to rappel, ~50m.

Toprope Protection

Slings.
