Outdoor Ice Wall

The Ice Tower is OPEN! 

After an unseasonably warm start to the winter, we have finally gotten enough cold to establish our ice!

This week (12/1-12/6) we will be open Wednesday & Friday: 4-8pm (closed Thursday), Saturday: noon-4pm. Next week our regular schedule resumes. It can be found in the right hand column. 

Holiday Closures: We will be closed 12/21 - 1/1 for the Christmas and New Year holidays. See you on Jan 2nd!

**Have questions about anchors, lead climbing, rappelling, places to climb, etc.? Tower staff will be happy to chat and help you out!

Who Can Ice Climb??

Beginners & experts are ALL welcome! We love teaching people and look forward to introducing you to the sport!

**We reccommend children be at least 10 years of age to ice climb due to the weight and nature of the equipment.

Equipment

All necessary equipment is included in the climbing fees and available for your use!  We have a full run of double plastic mountaineering boots, crampons, ice tools, harnesses, and helmets.

Ice Wall Closures

The Ice wall will shut down operation past -20 degrees both for safety and quality of ice. We will go off of the thermometer at the airport.
