Touchdown was as skinny as me. WI6 madness.

Stone Free & Ice Palace are off limits to climbing! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This formation is big enough to support more than one lead line with the easiest being WI5 (today) and the hardest being WI5+. I'm sure there are years 5+ is the easiest line and a WI6 line exists. The top, like most of Rifle's ice climbs, is dirty and the ice can start falling apart. Very comforting to finally get into the rappel anchor. I do love being able to stage for lead right at the car. More incredible Rifle ice. : )

Location 

0.6 miles into the canyon. 3 minute approach from the road.

Protection 

Screws for lead. Fixed rappel anchors around large tree.
