We only climbed in the Ice Park one day but it was really fun. We went just after the ice fest and the ice had healed surprisingly well on the steeper climbs- I thought it would be much more picked out. We enjoyed the Five Fingers and Scottish Gullies areas- good top belays at the former and fun, social climbing at the latter. A good option when there is a lot of competition for moderate multipitches in the area, which we found to be the case even during the week.

When Ullr doesn't bless us with a good, healthy, winter, man-made ice and snow are about all we can count on for wintry outdoor fun. The Ouray Ice Park has routes for all levels of climber, from newbies who've never swung a tool before to some of the most elite climbers in the world. Ouray is where they come to get their game on.

This park is amazing! So beautiful, and areas for beginners all the way to the most advanced ice climbers! I started climbing here 3 years ago, and am hooked! Truley a unique spot, I've seen nothing like this anywhere!

Easy to get to, uncrowded, and the climbers will readily explain the equipment, conditions, etc. I took lots of pictures and was blown away by the climbers and the icicles. There is so much to do in Ouray, even in winter.

Went with friends to go ice climbing and found the park to be breathtakingly serene!

There are places for beginners though if you are interested. I went with friends that had gears so I'm not sure if there are places to rent equipment.

If you do decide to go ice climbing, go early to avoid the crowd. We went at 6 am and we were able to get our routes first. Crowd started to arrive a couple of hours later.
