DescriptionThis is another Colorado Classic. It is a great single pitch of pure ice, and it is often chandeliered in the early season.
Toprope ProtectionThere are some slings around brush on the climber's left on top. Bring something long (15') to extend the anchors & reduce rope drag. To get to the top, hike up on the climber's left, then traverse back to the creek bed.
ApproachPer claytown: park on the downhill side of the Redstone Inn. Walk down that road, past the gate that says "private road / no trespassing". Walk the road for 5 or 10 minutes then turn left when you see the old T-bar ski lift. Walk uphill under that eventually following a creek drainage east to the climb.
Per BJ Sbarra: the Redstone Pillar itself is actually owned by Pitkin County Open Space, and this is the legal access to it.
