This ice crag is in the basin below the SW face of Quandary providing a more secluded outing in comparison to the nearby Lincoln Falls crag. Fewer pure ice options exist here than at Lincoln, and don't expect anything over WI3. For beginners, this could be a fun location to practice basic skills and enjoy the mountains. More experienced climbers may find this best as an ice bouldering option or mixed playground to spread use on a busy weekend.
A walking trail leads directly to this ice from the Blue Lakes Trailhead, which can remain accessible into the cold months so long as the road stays dry and gates remain open. The approach is around 800 vertical feet and maybe 1 mile. Expect 30 minutes to an hour.

This flow is the largest on the crag, running around 200 feet from top to bottom making for a full 60 meter pitch. Several WI2 steps lead to a WI3 step at the finish. The bottom and top steps are the largest. This maybe a good climb for multi-pitch practice as large pools exist above each step for ice anchors. A walkoff right down talus and scree would also enable easy laps for bouldering. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
