Im lucky enough to be off Ice climbing in Colorado for a month this weekend.I have a loose plan, which includes going to the Ice park in Ouray.I was wondering if anyone can suggest anywhere to climb on route from Denver airport to Ouray,any specific routes would be good as well.Any suggestions please.

Buy yourself a copy of Colorado Ice (Guide Book). Lots to do in Vail, Gunnison etc. But get to Ouray as fast as you can!!!

In reply to rab: go all the way to the top of bear creak in RMNP and you will find a huge frozen lake and a massive frozen waterfall! Good most of the winter should be good now i reacon! have not been in a few years. Take some snow shoes with you though or you wont make it up, and they are great on the way back down!

cant remember the nearest car park.

If you are any where near YMCA Rockies, Eastes Park call into the pool manager, tell him shaun sent you adn that you wanna do a bit of climbing! Ledgend, he will sort you out! or speak to caron in outdoor ed, husband is local guide always up for a laugh!
