The maps on ourayicepark.com (namely, ourayicepark.com/wp/wp-content... and ourayicepark.com/wp/wp-content... ) are blurry and even with printing or zooming I can't make out the route names.

Does anyone have a link to readable Ouray Ice Park maps with the routes labeled?


Thanks

If you want that level of detail you might have to buy the guidebook ($25 on the Ice Park web site). At one time you'd get a fold-out paper map if you bought an Ice Park membership, but they don't seem to do that any more.

Anyway, you don't really need a detailed map of each individual climb any more than you'd need a map for a climbing gym. All you need is general information about each area and how to get to the top or bottom. You can get most of that information from the Ice Park web site (or this site) and information boards at the park.

FYI, the handouts there are more up to date than the guidebook. However, both are sketchy to actually find the routes.

I'd try contacting the ice park directly - I bet they'd send you a PDF of those two files. They are a pretty small organization and have been very accommodating in my experience.

Keep in mind, the park is always in flux and the lines are very loosely named in my opinion. I've never been in the park and had someone say "I just topped out Kindergarten in the Schoolroom". On the other hand, "Jesus Build my Fingercrack" is a real route with very specific lines (since it's Mixed and recognizable).
