|climb the first pitch to the top of the bottom waterfall (200'), then walk up Bridalveil Creek to the upper fall for another pitch of knarly WI5+. Top out, hike west on the ledge to a large fir tree and a short (20') rap to the cliff's edge. Under the lip is a set of rap anchors. From here, 200' to the base of the upper waterfall, then hike west to the top of White Nightmare, where it's 200' to reach the ground.|

There are bolted rap anchors to the right as you top out the first curtain. They're within a couple feet of the anchors for the top of Bridal Veil Right.
Quite a mess of tat on two different trees as you top the tongue of ice on lookers right. I think I also saw some tat on trees for lookers left, closer to the falls themselves.
A single 70m rope will get you down in two rappels.

|The bolted P1 rap anchors often get covered with ice later in the season. When that happens, climbers using a single 70m rope need to be prepared to build an ice anchor part way down for the second rappel. This is also why it is not uncommon to collect "booty" ice screws off of this route.|
