Vail.

Rocktype: limestone
Base Elevation: 8500'
Water Source: flow and freeze/thaw
The following climbs are south of I-70 (and visible from the freeway), up the hillside, and drape over the limestone edge. The Rigid Designator is ususally the largest formation (a HUGE pillar), and makes for a convenient point of reference. To reach Vail's ice, take the East Vail exit off I-70 and follow the frontage road north of I-70 west for several miles until it passes under I-70 and begins to run parallel to the golf course. For the Designator/Fang area, take the first street to the left (after passing under I-70 on the frontage road), which is Aspen Lane. At the south end of the cul-de-sac there's a climber's trail that leads between the houses, across a bridge over Gore Creek and up the hill toward the ice. For the the 19th Hole, continue west along the frontage road from Aspen Lane. After about a mile, look for a pull-out on the south side (which includes parking for restrooms and the golf course pump house). A small trail leads up the mountain to the base of the falls. The climbs are listed in a left-to-right order.
