Description 

Fun little climb. Crazy mix of water ice, cauliflower ice, and snow. You get a little bit of everything. Stay either far right or left, there is a lot of water running down the center. Once on top of the falls traverse left to where the path is and anchor to some trees, watch out for running water! It would be fairly easy to fall in, and the closer that you get to the center of the falls, the thinner the ice gets. Not the time to go for a swim.

Protection 

Couple of ice screws. Trees up top for belay. Wouldn't recommend top roping this route.

That looks pretty awesome man. Reminds me of Swains Pillar in the Pool.
