DescriptionThis beautiful wall features the best ice climb in Colorado: Bridalveil Falls. First climbed by Jeff Lowe and Mike Weis in 1974 using prototype SNARGS and 70cm piolets. This one took real vision.
Located on a north-wall to the East of town, it's close enough to allow a leisurely cup of coffe before the climb, but far enough that the slackers will drive over to Ouray.
There are several climbs on the wall that form up depending on conditions. Ask the locals at the Telluride Mountaineer for fresh beta. DO NOT climb on the falls directly below the Power House. This is private property and you'll get arrested and the whole wall will get shut down by the Sheriff.
