Description [Suggest Change]
The Falls starts 100' down directly below the observation deck on the stream bed beside two large fallen logs. This climb is actually on the left side of the waterfall and can easily be reached by walking down from the right side of the water falls climbs. The crux starts right off the ground and continues right to the first bolt 15' up. Pretty bold lead unless you are a solid 5.11 climber! The remainer of the climb eases off to 5.6 - 5.8 and meanders a bit from bolt to bolt to the top. The spacing off the bolts is quite far apart and makes for a pretty intimidating lead. Don't lose concentration until you are actually standing up on top holding onto the observation deck support bars as the last few moves are quite hard and you are about 10' above the last bolt!
Protection [Suggest Change]
6 bolts to observation deck support anchors. The first bolt is 15' off the ground with the crux about 8-10' up. The landing is not great. One could stick clip the first bolt, climb to it from the right using second bolt as protection to get to it, or clip as you rappel down. The remainder of the climb is fairly continuous 5.6 - 5.8 on runout terrain! Trad gear poor.
