2018 Ouray Trip Sponsored by:


All climbing levels, abilities and ice climbing experience welcome!

The annual Paradox Ice trip to Ouray is one you don’t want to miss! There is a reason this is our longest running program and why it sells out every year – climbing at the Ouray Ice Park, instruction and guidance from world-class ice climbers, and one of the best mountain communities in Colorado make this one unforgettable weekend.

We provide instruction for all ages, ability and mobility levels and types.  No experience necessary! 

Our infamous Got Stump fundraiser is Saturday night in Ouray! Who will receive the Got Stump award in 2018!? This award is given each year to an adaptive climber in the Paradox community who is going above and beyond to prove what is possible and encourages others to push their limits as well. 






  • Friday afternoon: Check in to the Ouray Chalet, welcome dinner and socializing at the Ouray Brewery
  • Saturday: Full day of climbing at the Ouray Ice Park, lunch in the canyon, dinner and the “Got Stump?” Party in town
  • Sunday: Half day of climbing, lunch in the canyon, pack up and leave around 3pm
