The pyramid shaped flow steps up several times as it narrows to the lip. The top is probably usually thin.


50' SW of the first Battle Creek falls, about a 15 min hike up the trail from the parking area. Rap from the anchor station to the left, after pulling over the top into the gully.


screws. anchor over the lip on the left hand side.

I believe this is called Pure Fun and is in Dave Black's book on page 79.
There's another route up and right, right before you cross the first bridge about 100 yards before you get to Battle Creek Falls and felt about WI3+ to a short second pitch about WI2. Rap from Trees.
Good job on the higher climbs, I saw those around Xmas time and wondered how fun they would be.

Thanks, Darren. I wasn't sure about this one, and hadn't thought to check the book. The ice up high is of a surprisingly good quality, but short and a lot of work to get to.
