The Aspen-area is home to a variety of beginner and advanced ice
Friendly south facing Stein Falls could be one of the best beginner natural waterfall ice climbing areas in Colorado. Minutes from downtown Aspen, an easy 30 minute approach along the Roaring Fork River takes us to this scenic frozen waterfall. No experience is necessary and this sport is accessible to most physical abilities. Your private AMGA trained/ certified ice climbing guide will provide you with a safe and fun day out with the highest level of instruction. If you can climb a ladder and hammer a nail, you can ice climb! We supply all the necessary equipment complimentary, including specialized ice climbing boots.
For the More Experienced Climber:
Consider a guided day of ice climbing in Redstone. Deep in the heart of the Rockies, the small Victorian town of Redstone, Colorado lies beneath soaring red sandstone cliffs. Ample snowfall and year-round waterfalls that freeze solid from November through March make the hamlet an ice and mixed climber’s get away with abundant routes. From WI 2 to WI 5, and M2 to M10, rim to canyon, most have easy access and are just minutes from the car.
Classic Routes of Redstone include Avocado Gully – WI 3+ M3, Redstone Pillar – WI 3+, Marble Falls – WI 4, The Drool – WI5, and the long and rambling Dancing in the Moonlight – WI3. We also guide moderate to steep ice curtains in Rifle, CO.
