This is a subarea created for better organization. It will include routes below the lower bridge down to the Scottish Gully, By Gully. Obviously, with an ice park, the routes will vary with spigot proliferation.

For the time being, these routes will include Escape Clause to Dizzy Curtain.

Some of these routes utilize bolt anchors on rocks which can be buried under the snow.

This area is subject to heavy doses of sunshine on Colorado days, so be prepared to tan.

This too is a very popular area. On popular weekends, it can be hard to find an open anchor or line, so beware!

Getting There 

Hike up to the ice park, or drive and park. Consider parking at the lower end of the parking area. Then go downhill from the lower bridge. In this section, there are routes on the east side of the gorge, too. Most folks will rappel into these routes, but some folks have allegedly hiked down from the east side of the gorge.

Climb moderate ice up to a large ledge at the base of the rock. Tic Tac is to the left. Seamstress is on the right. Difficult moves right off the ledge ease but remain technical to the top. I heard that some key holds have broken off and it might feel more difficult....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
