The Lower Bridge has it all. Moderate to desparate ice, and some of the classic mixed routes of the park. Don’t mention, that the approach couldn’t get any shorter. You can even scout out your route from the bridge. There is a walk down on the opposite side of the river near the viewing stand.

Mixed Routes

Sisters of Mercy (M7, bolts) Just below the lower bridge. Begin on the Boat Ramp and traverse left.

Super Dave (M7, gear) Stunning overhanging crack facing the lower bridge and viewing plaform. Sometimes the seam to the right can be clmbed as well. Bring cams to 5″.

Tic Tac (M7, bolts) One of the most popular mixed routes in the Ice Park. This route is located just below the Popsicle and Stone Free. Climb ice to a seam/small left facing corner with bolts, finishing on ice.

Seamstress (M8, bolts) climbs just right of Tic Tac. You’ll get worked if you mistake this route for Tic Tack, it’s much more technical. This route follows a seam protected by bolts.
