This area features many climbs of many grades with a relatively short (30min-1hr) ski or snowshoe approach. As always check avalanche conditions before climbing.
To get to the Cataract Gulch climbs you need to park at the seasonal closure at the end of County Road 30. From here take follow the Cataract Gulch trail up through the trees. Once out of the trees climbs on the East and West side of the gulch can be accessed.
