Dribbles area hosts some of the best and most popular routes in Hyalite, including Dribbles, Silken Slot and Silken Falls. Rarely formed gems like Alex in Wonderland (or Climb Above Dribbles), and Avalanche Gulch are also in this area.

Getting There 

The approach takes over an hour usually. Take Hyalite Creek trail past amphitheater area and continue on (you will see Fat Chance (wi3) and Thin Chance (wi4)to your left.

Look for a trail cutting left and up through the trees just past this meadow. Continue up and approach the climb of your choosing.
