This is a subarea created for better organization. It will include routes in the area of the Outhouse. Obviously, with an ice park, the routes will vary with spigot proliferation.

For the time being, these routes will include: Plunger to Royal Flush.

The names are inspired by the Outhouse above.

Getting There 

Hike up to the ice park, or drive and park. Then go a significant way downhill from the lower bridge on the western side/far side of the gorge. You can easily reach this area going uphill from the downhill end of the gorge by hiking uphill from town. The best identifying feature is the brick outhouse near the top of this area.

Most folks will rappel down or be lowered in to climb these routes.

This climb is located in the lower part of the canyon, near the entrance to Box Canyon. It is, as of 2003, the second-most downhill part of the Ice Park (just upstream from the Gazebo area). It is most easily found by locating the bricked outhouse downstream from the lower bridge of the Ouray Ice Park. It nearly lines up with the Men's Room end (downhill) of the building. It is currently the 4th most downhill of ice blobs in this area.To TR, find a large tree and use long slings to extend th...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
