I don't know that this area has ever been climbed, as the local ice climbing guide fails to mention anything about routes in this area. I can hardly believe its never been climbed though. Regardless, there is a wide curtain of ice forming on the cliffs east of Lost Creek, appearing to be in the 60 foot range. Anywhere else in the lower 48, and I'm almost certain it would be quite busy on any given weekend. There appears to be plenty of mixed climbing potential here as well.
Across the highway from Nunn's Park, pull off at the Bridal Veil Overlook, park on the Westbound side. Hike up the hill to the base of the ice. Doubtful there are any anchors at the top, be prepared to v-thread.
