About chalk falls:

right side is a WI3, single waterfall about 35ft high the left has a more vertical 2nd half. when you reach the top there is a smaller pine that can be anchored off of. you may want to put in a dictional screw be careful the stream tends to be shallow here so dont damage your screws!
Approach: head away from leadville on 91 same as the directions to cecil ville slab, pass cecil rock on your on your right and keep driving, a few miles up the road on your left will be a parking lot probably filled with snow mobilers, park here or and this is the better option park 100ft up the road on the left, this will be an obvious road covered with snow pull in at the bottom, walk up the road maybe 50-70yards and then left into the trees, there may already be a trail, over the hill down try to head west into the gully making your way over felled trees and some rocks becareful as it narrows you are walking on the stream and slick bloulders, keep heading back and you should run right into it, hopfully the trail will already be cut for you lots of people use this area so it shouldnt be an issue, watch out for the 'bilers
