About Dribbles Area:

The Dribbles is nearly the largest piece of ice in Hyalite Canyon, dominating the eastern side of the canyon 2 miles from the trailhead. It is the tallest continuous ice flow in the canyon. For many climbers, this is a favorite multi-pitch climb in a fantastic setting.
Approach: To get to The Dribbles, park at the Grotto Falls trailhead in the main fork of Hyalite Canyon. Hike up the trail south through the canyon for ~1.5 miles to the Arch Falls sign. Continue up about half a mile until you come to a small field with a creek on either side of it - there is only one such field on the trail. Head to the left (east) up through the forest, usually on a packed trail. The gully you are in is the same drainage as Avalanche Gulch. Once you can see the lower ice of Avalanche Gulch, veer right into the next drainage, and The Dribbles will be clearly seen.
