What a great smile, Corey. Proud Dad.
Classic roadside. South of Carbondale near McClure Pass. There is a sign on CO Hwy 133 that says "Hays Creek Falls." Short approach is less than a minute. 60 feet. Quick & easy. Skippable if you want solitude or something challenging. Rap or downclimb.
Ice screws, rope.

Climbed here last week (1/16) and the ice was good, but I couldn't find any bolts to rap off of. Are they there and just under ice or am I blind? Can't beat the approach though!

This report is for Rifle Mountain Park. Rifle is in excellent shape. the final curtain area, where the moderates are, is fat blue ice. routes ranging from 4+ pillars to 3 slabs. the real PRIZE is the fang like pillar that formed 250 feet right of Stone Free. I was out sport climbing so I didn't boot up,(of course I would of...) but the formation looks outrageous - if there are people looking to climb some really steep ice that is untouched, get to Rifle. oh yeah, the descent beta for Hays Creek falls: Downclimb

Does anyone know if there are further waterfalls in the canyon above the roadside falls? Thanks!- Mike

Anchor webbing replaced with chains thanks to the ARI. Also, check out www.splitterchoss.com for more info on climbing in the Redstone area.

Does anyone now if you can access this from the top to TR? Or do you just have to lead it?

You can usually scramble up the left side of the formation via pretty darn easy terrain (WI1-ish or less?) and gain access to the anchors at top. Requires tools and crampons.
