Mount Charleston Wilderness Area Details
Much of this area is in the Mount Charleston Wilderness Area, learn which crags are within our outside of it before you go. See the BLM Fact Sheet blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files… for a good overview of what it protects and what that limits, and the Forest Service page fs.usda.gov/detailfull/htnf… for other information.
Getting ThereAfter parking in the Mary Jane parking lot, hike back down the road to Echo Well No. 3. Turn right (south) and enter the small - usually unplowed - parking lot. You may park here if you can get in. Ascend an avalanche gully above the well and parking lot. Eventually the gully will split. At this point one should be able to see the falls above and to the left. Climb the left gully to the base of the falls at approximately 8600 feet. The approach should take about an hour.
Note: The cleft above and to the right periodically gets ice...
