|North Vail, non-Booth Creek
I'm sure this has been climbed before but couldn't find any info. Didn't know the name, now I've been informed it is as above. If you're curious.
This is that 4-tiered ice flow just off the exit on the north side of the road. It's a bit of an approach.
P1. The 1st flow is barely anything.
P2. The 2nd is a 25-30 foot steep bit of thinnish of ice. It can be WI 4+ on its left.
P3. The 3rd bit is WI 3-. It is short.
P4. The 4th bit has a few options including a 40 foot elephant hose like pillar.
Pick a cloudy day. Descend the hillside.
Ice screws are all that is needed. Stubbies can be helpful.

Looks like Goat's Beard to this local Vail climber. I've heard it gets rotten. Don't really climb on that side much. Vail Guy
