Colorado / North America in the middle of the Rockies has the best conditions for frozen waterfalls due to its geographical latitude and the influence of the Arctic.
This is also the reason why the world's largest artificial ice climbing park has been built in Ouray. It has proven itself for 20 years, and offers ideal conditions for an ice climbing trip to this ice climbing paradise in Colorado.
Steve House, the world-famous professional mountaineer, being our friend and climbing partner, doesn't live far from Ouray, and on request he provides us with the best information about the prevailing conditions.
A 360-page ice climbing guide book proves the density of waterfalls in Colorado. Trust our experience and book one of our programmes. As with the expertise of the ICEGUIDES you will experience even more in your ice climbing holidays!
