Description 

Terraced ice wall, not sure if the falls itself ever freezes.


Getting There 

Stay left after the entrance station and after a mile or so there is a parking turn off on the right with a sign to Stephens Falls. VERY short walk to the top of the falls. Jump the creek to the left to set a TR.

A picture of the the terraced climbing on Feb. 27, 2010. The falls has not frozen, and is just out left of the picture. The climbs, if divided in quarters L to R, are easy, medium, hard, hard -, with nothing over WI3 from my understanding

The ice got kind of fat in the last month, too bad it's pretty short and the belay area would be on very thin ice.  Feb 7th, 2009.

With increased traffic at G Dodge please respect the trees at the top of the Stephens Falls and try keep as many people as possible off the upper area to set TRs. The park staff is very friendly to let us all climb here and they are concerned about unofficial trails being created. Leave no trace!

I believe the routes listed in this sections as "Stephens Falls" and "Pokey Gonzales Goes Ice Climbing" are the same based on the comments, grades and lengths. The route listed as "Orange Peel" is in fact Stephens Falls proper and the other two are referencing the wall to the climbers right.
