Shorter climb than I was expecting from the saddle. Short exposed crux. Great views.

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2012


Standard NE. ridge. Great scramble! We did a fourth class variation of the crux, about fifty feet left, on somewhat solid rock. Long day, remote, very few people. This is in my top ten best peaks in Colorado!!!

Climbed with Challenge/Discovery trip out of Crested Butte, Co. Lots of loose rock and exposure--a challenge indeed!

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2011


Climbed Ice Mountain via NE Ridge from N. Apostle. Nice solid scrambling on the ridge crest. The upper steep chimney (left of the standard gully) was fun. Beautiful weather, gorgeous views!

Long day but more than worth the effort. Would like to do it again via the Refrigerator.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2011


Took the refrigerator couloir to the summit. High winds and bad weather forced a downclimb of the couloir instead of a ridge traverse. Will come back in summer for the apostles.

StephanieLynnCrushed Ice Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2008


Took the ridge from Huron all the way to West Apostle, tagging Ice along the way for the second time this year. A 19 hour day. I have a love-hate relationship with this peak and it's fellow Apostles. With Heather and Craig.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2010


Did Ice via the NE ridge. No snow in the gully or on the ridge. Definitely need to test the handholds on the steeper sections of the Class 3-4 climbing as the rock is very loose, and rotten rock mixed in there too.
TH 4:30
Summit North: 9:00
Summit Ice: 10:00
Back to TH 3:00
Lots and lots of talus hopping, and some wet rock made for a very slow descent. Long day, but definitely a great time on these peaks, that dont feel like they are in the Sawatch.

Darren9beautiful but untouchable


In two separate attempts to climb this mountain I was unsuccessful due to deep snow and seriously high winds that pinned us in our tent for 12 hours. Still want to go back someday. A hidden gem.

Nice Axe!Apostle Traverse (N to W)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2009

Nice Axe!

I'd been eying this traverse since 2005 and finally made it up there. The climb to North Apostle & Ice Mtn was really fun with big talus high up just below the saddle. The traverse to West and the descent were slogs!

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2009


Via NE ridge after climbing N. Apostle; the route from the saddle to the summit was a real pleasure with pretty solid scrambling. We did the direct class 4 finish of the upper gully which was exciting. Too bad the scrambling was over so quickly after such a long slog to the saddle!

altitude14erRoute Climbed: Refrigerator Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2009


We started climbing towards the infamous 'Fridge' at 3am. Snow conditions were fantastic..no snowshoes needed. We were lucky enough to get no falling rock in the couloir..a hazard it is well known for! The traverse to N.Apostle was too harry due to snow accumulation..we ended up descending the 'Fridge'

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2008


I thought it was all hype. The nasty talus and scree on the approach for a short, mostly class 2+ ridge with 40 feet of chossy class 3 didn't allow the mountain to live up to it's reputation. The plus is the beautiful area Ice is located in and the views of the surrounding peaks.

Tagged Ice along the way from Huron to W. Apostle. A great mountain, but the decent down the gully wasn't exactly fun. An awesome and very looong day.

A wildly fun and exciting mountain! Throughly enjoyed the snowclimb and scramble to the summit. This mountain is SO out of character for the Sawatch.
