Eureka Ice Climbing

Just outside of Silverton, lies the abandoned mining town of Eureka.  Eureka holds some of the longest moderate ice routes in the lower 48.  Stairway to Heaven and Whorehouse Hoses are outright Colorado Classics.  If you are an ice climber looking to expand your skills into long ice routes with multi-rappel descents - Eureka is a fantastic place to gain experience with full day outings in the mountains!
