Sam and Tater Tot P, Climbing on Bridalveil Falls....


Depending on conditions, the left side can be a very easy, good beginner lead climb. Probably easier and safer to lead the climb than to scramble up and around and try to toprope the thing.


Spearfish Canyon, can't miss it, right off the road.


Depending on your level of comfort, 5 to 8 ice screws should do. Fixed fat anchors at the top.

WI1 is considered to be roughly 50 degrees. I wouldn't consider this that low angle, but maybe it is. I would give this at least WI2. For more information check for a general classification of ice climbs.
