Description

A south facing cirque below the lower falls. This area offers climbs roughly twice as tall as the upper falls, and includes the area classics, Ride of the Valkyries, and Twilight of the Gods.
The lower falls area sees less climbing traffic, and less lookie-lues then the upper falls.
Most of the climbs are top ropes or stiff traditional leads. If leading be advised that there is a band of less then quality rock that runs horizontally around the area at the ground level of the upper falls.
Bolts, with hangers only, exist at the top of many of the routes and are in various states of usefulness.

  • There is some debate as to where the property line between Fossil Falls and the Little Lakes Ranch is. As such avoid venturing any farther down stream form the lower falls then you need to.

Getting There

follow the trail from the parking lot to the upper falls, then continue south above the canyon on the west side, look for a class 3 scramble down to the lower falls area.

or do some 5th class down climbing on the east side of the lower falls cliff face.
