I am not an ice climber myself, but my wife and I enjoyed watching others. Just a quick walk (or even quicker drive) up the hill from Ouray, you can choose your spot from several observation decks and enjoy the fruit of another's labors. The decks provide an excellent vantage point opposite the ravine from popular routes, perfect for photography, yodeling, or just enjoying the fresh mountain air.

AWESOME park! The park crew does a fantastic job farming the ice and keeping it as fat as possible. A bunch of friendly guys and gals that are there to help. Been going there for 9 years and always a GREAT time. Climber or not, you got'a see the park!

The Ice Park is amazing! The walks to the climbing areas is very well maintained and so easy to get to. Once in the canyon, there is so much ice....it is really a beautiful spot! The ice climbing is super fun and it is easy to set up top ropes.
