It's awesome. It's free. It is such a good idea in so many ways. We really enjoyed our time climbing in Ouray.

What a fantastic experience to interact with (mostly) nature in this way, challenging oneself while surrounded in absolute beauty. WARNING--the climbing gets addictive!
Easy ice climbing with hero ice. It was warm and the ice was plastic. Very little dinner plating, and I found the climbing wet and easy, even though it was my first ice climbing trip of the year. The screws went in and out easily. We mostly top roped as you walk along the top and lower into the canyon.... More
Was here for the Annual Ice Climbing Festival never have done it before and will do it again. To putting on all the gear and climb straight up a wall words cannot not describe the feeling.

A short walk from the road are some fantastic views of the Ice Park. I am not interested in climbing it but enjoyed looking at the beautiful icicles and ice formations. Gorgeous to look at.
I was there this past winter the weekend after Ice Fest, and it was so crowded I couldn't believe it. An ice farmer said there were five hundred people in the park. They have over promoted the ice park, so now it seems very crowded.
Just to see the people climbing is such fun and it's a beautiful place to enjoy the outdoors. Be sure to be properly dressed, as it is cool with all the ice.
It was anew experience to see ice climbers. We talked to a number of the climbers and many were from other parts of the USA. It was fun to watch them climb up the ice and then head back down. The frozen ice falls were pretty to look at, with a blue hue to them.
Wanted to watch the ice climbers where we could easily see without wading through ice & snow ourselves. Very hard. If you're climbing it looked great.
