Ice Climbing

Steamboat Climbing. Colorado ice and rock climbing in the Yampa valley and beyond.

If you enjoy the mountains, don't miss this unique exhilarating experience!

 

  • Fun and adventure in a spectacular mountain setting on a frozen waterfall!
  • No experience necessary
  • All equipment and instruction from our professional guides included
  • Round-trip transportation can be provided from guest lodging or another meeting location- call for directions to Fish Creek Falls if needed
  • The only permitted ice climbing guide service in Steamboat for Fishcreek Falls
  • Season runs from early December to early March only

 

Fish Creek is a spectacular place to try your skills at ice climbing. Great for beginners or those interested in trying ice climbing. All climbing equipment and instruction is provided by knowledgeable guides. Only five minutes from downtown and a short hike to the base of the falls, RMV guides provide instruction on ice axe and crampon (spiked boots) technique and set-up a climbing top-rope on a pre-set anchor (just like in climbing gyms, only on ice). Climbers can climb as high as they want and be lowered whenever they please. RMV guides promote a positive learning experience on a 200 foot waterfall in the beautiful Fish Creek canyon. If you're lucky, you might even get to see the water flowing behind the ice.
