This ice climb is not in Silverplume but on Mt. Sniktau just a little west of Silverplume on the south side of I-70 near the Loveland Ski area. Take the Loveland Ski area/U.S. route 6 exit, and park at the Loveland Valley Skiing parking lot (just before you go back eastbound on I-70). Hike east on the Loveland/Bakersville Trail until you reach a dominant gully. Then hike up this gully to the ice; the hike will take 20-45 minutes depending on snow depth. The icefall is about 25-30 feet tall and is a good place for beginners. Also, this ice route can almost guarantee solitude.
