Description 

Bridal Veil Falls generally forms with climbs on the two sides, ranging from WI2ish on the right side to WI 4ish on the left side. Because this is a proper waterfall, the ice is generally VERY fat. Be aware of the danger posed by thin ice in the middle of the pool and near the vertical ice in the middle of the flow.

Location 

Pick your path up through the bulges. There is a fairly obvious trail from the top of the Falls that leads to Upper Bridal Veil and/or the road, or rappel back down to the very bottom and hike out.

Protection 

Standard ice rack. You can TR off a tree at the top on the right (see existing rap slings), and with a directional you can set up two different lines. A 60m rope is all that's required, if you extend the tree anchor.
