This was a bucket list thing for someone my age (63). There was no one jumping over the age of 30, except for moi! It's about a 20' jump, and could be 30' if you depart from some higher rocks and jump out a bit...More

This place is very fun to visit, even if you don’t plan on doing the “big jump.” Plenty of room to just sit around and relax. If you do decide to make the higher jump, rest assured it is safe.

The reviews on here make this gem of a swimming hole seem like an insane extreme cliff diving spot, which it is. But, it is also a cool place to sun and chill with family or friends. NOT ALL THE JUMPS ARE SUPER HIGH. You...More

Easy to find on the Aspen side of Independence Pass. Was cold when we got there around 10am. Unfortunately no locals or others who had jumped before, so didn't chance a jump. Very pretty setting, wish we could have experienced the thrill. Maybe next time.

I am a cliff diving enthusiast and this spot is a must in the High Country. Water is crystal clear! Not for the timid though, as the water is very frigid from the snow melt. There are many hazards in the area, so use caution....More

This is an interesting little spot along Hwy 82 not far from Aspen. There is no sign indicating where it is. You'll see an unsigned pull-out between The Grottos & Weller Lake Trailhead. The falls area is pretty interesting the way the water cut it...More
