This area is located about 2 miles to the southeast of The Ice Castles. The rock is sharp quartz monzonite similar to the rock at Beardsley Boulders and Pinnacle Peak. The area most likely hasn't been tapped out as there are several hundred boulders in the area. As of now access to the area and how to get there has changed since I was last there and if anyone could post some new information on how to access the are that would be great! I no longer live in the are but a few people have recently reached out to me about getting here.
How to access the Icecapades ares is currently unknown. Please PM me if you have any helpful information on accessing the area. Prior to construction of a new housing area you could access the area by crossing this bridge at these coordinates (33.735601, -112.169893).

I drove to the end of 51st but there are "No Trespassing" signs all over the fence at the end of the road. Has anyone attempted to receive permission to access this area? Are the Icecapades off limits? It seems a shame to not be able to climb here.
