Finish of the approach
Great multi-pitch Ice route. First pitch bolts are on the right side at the base of the upper falls. I'm not sure on the bolts for the second pitch. Approach from the highway because the county road is closed in the winter. You have to make your way down into the canyon cross the creek then work your way back up the dirt road. The final approach is steep and requires some post holing to get there. I'm not sure who the first accent belongs to or even what the real name of the route is(I just picked something). We climbed this over the weekend and noticed there wasn't a route on mountain project for it. If anyone knows the specifics please fill them in.

Thanks Nick, it was an awesome climb! It was well worth the drive and approach. We wanted to do the second pitch but the large fracture across it scared us off. Doing this one again next winter for sure.
