|Terrific climb. Why this is not more popular is amazing, no one is ever here, it is an easy walk in two (badly placed) bolts for a lower off. Great fun and plenty of opportunity to put up mixed routed. A gem.|

Well... I wouldn't say it has been "incorrectly" called Pitkin Falls.
In fact, it has been called Pitkin Falls since at least the late '80s. Of course, this should not to be confused with Pitkin Creek Falls, which is something completely different!!!
Now, this ice flow is NOT part of Pitkin Creek but instead faces Pitkin Creek and is located above where Pitkin Creek enters Gore Creek, hence the name. Sort of like Firehouse is located above the firehouse, and Racquet Club is located above the racquet club.....go figure.
Pitkin Falls is now designated open space and a new sign marks it as East Vail Falls, but I assume the sign and name came from Town of Vail and from non-climbers, but I don't know for sure.
As for parking...don't even consider parking along the road there. Not only will you get a ticket, but you will probably get towed.... And in Vail that is not cheap.... Trust me on this one!!!
