Description 

The Lower Ice Caves subarea contains a number of old moderates, such as Continental Breakfast, and one new route, the excellent Bloodhound (which is actually an extension to an old route). This subarea includes routes Bumble Bee to Bloodhound.

Getting There 

This is best accessed from the large Wasteland parking lot found on the west side of the road, 0.3 mile from the entrance, just after the bridge crosses the creek. The trail is marked with a sign and is found before the bridge, cutting through what is often heavy vegetation.

Leather Queen 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  Colorado : Rifle Mountain Park : ... : Lower Ice Caves
This is a short but pumpy route that heads up through a bulge. I felt like the crux was between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.Per John Byrnes: this is a hard 9-move boulder problem with a little climbing at the top. The crux is figuring out what to do!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
