Meagan and Art doing the multi-pitch version.


This is a nice, easy line just left of Columbine Falls. 2 variations. The left version is longer 180 feet. It can spray water from pick holes due to its hydropower. There is a neat ice tube with water flowing up high.


6-10 ice screws.

Toprope Protection 

Challenging...perhaps long slings for boulders.

Both sides of Columbine Falls are still in. Judging from the screw holes, I'm not the only one who has been up there climbing on it recently. Should stay in for another couple of weeks. Both sides are mostly nice plastic with the tops of the bulges being a little brittle.

Dream Weaver looks like it may be mostly snow, though definitely go for it. The trail is mostly packed snow and is in pretty good shape.

Yup, these were all in Nov.-Dec. 2012. With the lack of snow & ice throughout the Park this season, this was a great, easy day out. Mostly I'd have to call these 2 Columbine routes WI3-, but that corner out to the left was fun. Paul Gagner also lead a nice mixed route left of that, that was probably 5.8+ with a couple blobs of ice at the bottom along the 50' left-angling traverse. It became a 45m route in all, and we had a great day out tucked in below the wind.
