Marius seconding on the first cascade.


This is the first of two waterfalls in Issyk Ata. It is actually a very nice, solid piece of ice. On the left side of the waterfall is a great place for beginners, while the centre and right side is a little bit more challenging.


This is the first waterfall in a series of two.


In all reality it could be done without any screws, but hey, you don't really want to risk it, do you? Take a couple screws with you and two long ones for an anchor at the top and you will be fine. There is good enough ice to make an Abalokov though if you know what you are doing.
