Coal Creek is one of those places that in the right conditions is fantastic, but catching it in shape can be tough. There’s a healthy variety of climbs here when they come in, from short pillars to rope stretching mixed routes. In a good winter, abundant snowfall with the right combination of sunny and cloudy days means a lot of ice. In a warm winter, the south facing cliffs get hit hard by the sun and there wont be much more than a tease. Despite being very ephemeral, the climbs here are some of the most interesting in the valley, and it’s our only ice cragging zone.
