Description

Between here and Stairway, this is the most visited areas of all of Provo Canyon, and home to some of the first ice ascents in the state (Greg Lowe in 1971!) to one of the hardest bolted lines (Santaria M12), this area is not to be missed! Classic ice routes and "old school" bolted mixed routes on the first band of rock, this area offers plenty of ice from the budding leader to the M climber. Hike up to the first and second tier and you will find a handful more ice and mixed lines scattered across the cliff bands.

Getting There

Park at the Nunn's picnic area and follow the paved trail east to the bridge that goes over the creek that is formed from Bridal Veil Falls. Walk nother 30 seconds past the bridge, then continue on the switchbacking dirt trail leading to the base of the falls, but on the left side. Put on your crampons, and cross below the falls to the base of the routes. Note: There can be serious avalanches in this entire zone that have been known to go all the way to the highway. Check the avi forecasts before climbing here.
