Bridge Mountain from the summit of Ice Box Peak

Ice Box Peak is a fine peak in Red Rock Canyon NCA. With a short approach and only a couple thousand feet of elevation gain, the class 4-5 north chute route is shady enough that the route can even be done (with an early start) in mid-summer.

Great scrambling in a sublime environment with astounding summit views, Ice Box Peak is good enough that I've done it three times!

*If returning via the ascent route, consider bringing a rope for the descent.
