Sandstone Ice Park
Ice Climbing in Robinson Park Quarry on the edge of the Kettle River.
In the past few years piping for sprinkler heads have been installed above the cliffs in Robinson Park. The farmed ice draws in climbers from across the northern states and has become a destination spot for many seeking frozen walls of ice.
The Sandstone Ice Festival started back in 2004, helping to open the park to the climbing community.
The Robinson Park is open to the public for climbing year round, the Ice climbing starts in early December (or when it’s cold enough) and the Ice Festival happens January 6,7,8 – 2017.
