This climb isn't in the Durango area, it's in the Silverton area but it's in the Animas Valley.
This route is similar to first and second gully in Eureka. The nice thing about this one is there is zero avalnche danger.
P1, WI3, 200feet---
Climb the short step to a big flat spot, continue up low angle ice to another flat spot, belay at a tree with slings.
P2, WI2, a long freakin' way---
Simul climb this one, trust me. Begin up low angle ice, the creek gets pretty flat above it, continue up the creek to another section of low angle ice. Continue up snow to the nice looking final pitch.
P3, WI 3 to WI4, 100ft---
Climb the ginormus piece of ice. Tons of varitations. Far left is WI3, far right is WI4.
Belay from a tree with rap slings.
Descent- rap the route
