Great time in Colorado.
Fun day out.
Went there several times with different folks. always, all were had by a fun time...haven't been back since '88
Lead at easy WI5 on right side of pillar. WI4 in front. Free solo of Bowling Alley two times and various mixed climbs around
The access might have changed since this page was created. We were able (and instructed by a worker at the reservoir) to drive around and park at the of the road. The hike in required hip deep postholing at we broke trail. Oh yea, and the climbing was great. Led up the slad and then TR'ed the third pitch of the left flow.
Top roped Bowling Alley. Great ice on the third pitch. A bit slushy elsewhere even in the -35 degree weather.
Climbed left slabs and a far left curtain. Cold conditions and some waxy ice but had a great time with Steve L. For sure going back
Climbed the Scottish Gully. Easy brittle choss on P1, wet plastic single stick ice on P3. Will come back for the Pillar and right flow when my gloves dry out.
Climbed around on center ice area. The "slab" is now a 25ft vertical fall that connects to the top of the pillars. Did about 5 pitches on it.
I love Lincoln Falls, one of my favorite places to climb!!! Thank you for making a page on it!!!!
First time at the falls. Very cold indeed, but some good routes. Ice was really brittle becasue of the cold, but I will definately come back once it gets better. First ice lead here on some WI2. Great place to TR and lead harder grades too.
Amazed that we only saw one soloist the entire day! Ice very well formed but a bit brittle due to warm temps during the last week.
