Description 

Ice climbing area across the creek from the Chain Station. Melt fed so it forms up a little later nut stays in the shade all winter so the climbing can be good even when the Chain Station is sunbaked.

This area has a few short mixed routes listed in Life By The Drop by Jack Hunt which is the authoritative guide to Wolf Creek Pass.

The main reason to climb here are the long routes on the large ice sheet visible from the road. These can be mixed or all ice and when all ice reminicent of the final pitch of Ames Ice Hose.

Getting There 

The river must be frozen or have a snow bridge. Snowshoe across the river towards the ice. Its farther than it looks so plan on taking the better part of a casual day to climb a few lines over there.
