Follow the Pinto Lake trail from the parking lot. The trail begins to climb uphill through a grove of poplars. As it does so, it rounds a small knoll behind which is the first small indistinct draw. Follow the draw (disappears) then bushwhack until you come to a prominence above the river. Follow this until the gallery and the ice across the river is visible. You will eventually have to drop down into the river bottom to get to the base of the ice. You can get to the bottom of the ice without a rappel if you look for a dry gully immediately east of the ice. The approach can take 30mins- 1 hours depending on conditions. If snow is plentiful, skis are recommended. The Gallery tends to be a very cold place in the early winter as it rarely receives any sun and is a bit of a cold trap. (83C/1 345789)
