Colorado Ice Climbing Conditions Feb 05 2009: Wild Basin - Hidden Falls, The Dangler

Went up to Hidden Falls for the first time today. It was super, easy well packed trail and only one other party there. Did a bunch of laps on Hidden Falls, as many variations as possible and then went to work on the dangler, the left leaning seam to the right of Hidden Falls that goes to the roof. The dangler is very fun, except when you reach the ledge mid way, there is alot of loose rock and the flake above is very loose that I yarded on. Be Careful. Hidden Falls is given WI 4- in the book and the Dangler M7- WI 5 (but there was no ice and we didn't pull through the roof). Enjoy
