BETA PHOTO: The waterfall
This is a fun little ice climb that isn't too long, but the ice is so bad that it makes it a bit hairy. Because of waterfall spray there is a lot of chandelier ice that makes placing good pro a bit hard to do. But there s a good ledge to shake out the jitters on 1/3rd of the way up.
In the canyon on the right as you come to Chong Kurchak. You need to hike in about 25 minutes, maybe a bit more and scramble up a couple tiny falls to get to this one. Further in there is a really beautiful, tall, waterfall that still needs to be climbed.
1-3 ice screws depending on ice condition. We didn't build an anchor at the top, we just down climbed, but you could make an abalokov at the top.
