Description 

This is the wall to the right of Stephens Falls. In a good year the whole wall ices up, but usually there are at least a couple lines to be had on the wall. The most reliable is a line just to the left of some fallen trees.

Protection 

Pro depends on conditions, but you can usually get a couple of short screws in. Take a piece of webbing (or really long cord) to sling some trees for the top anchor.

Moved this route to this area. Thank Nick, I missed this when it was posted. Nice shot! You should submit a larger version.

I climbed this on Thursday the 14th. The ice was soft and a great height to learn technique and do some leading. When the falls freezes this area does not and when this area freezes the falls does not. Interesting. Fun 1st climb.

The right wall had two wimpy lines today, no good spots for screws. The falls itself was really wet but climbable.
