This is a wide frozen waterfall with about six definite lines on it. It is a good route to get mileage on. Depending on conditions be careful not to take the plunge into the falls, as you could get wet and miserable.


Rap in off bolted anchor to start the route and assess the conditions.


Ice Screws,#1-3 Camalots, Stoppers, runners, quickdraws, 2 bolt anchor.

If you climb the left side, be very careful traversing across the thin ice to get to the left side and take a #1,#2, and #3 camalots and an ice screw with a cordelette for the belay up in the cave. Traverse out right to Jemez Falls proper to get off.

Climbed the falls on 1/16/09. Ice at the bottom is a bit thin, so we belayed from the top. While the route is short, the location is great and anything that close to home (Los Alamos) gets bonus points from me.
