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.

This is the wall to the right of Stephens Falls. In a good year the whole wall ices up, but usually there are at least a couple lines to be had on the wall. The most reliable is a line just to the left of some fallen trees....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

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.
