This is the Silver Cascade waterfall which you can reach from a trail on the left right before you reach the Helen Hunt falls. The Colorado Springs government decided to add water flow to the left side of the waterfall, which makes it perfect for ice climbing. Semi-hard and chips pretty easily, but is a really fun climb.

Descent Options:

There is a trail on the south side of the climb which is about a 3/4 climb.

3 out of 5 stars Super Awesome Low Angle Ice

Soloed it in jeans and a sweater on a warm winter's day. Very easy and lots of options below the trees.
