Two long pitches of ice.
P1 - (WI5) Steep and sustained. Build own anchor if anchor bolts are covered with ice.
P2 - (WI4-5) Climb a series of steps to trees. Rappel from webbing on trees.
Check avalanche conditions before climbing in this area.
Massive avalanches rip down this drainage nearly every year.

Ice screws, two ropes, anchor material. Rappel from trees.

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.
