Description

On the left side of the falls, is a bolted route Left of this is a leftward trending unprotectable corner. Climb this. Not a hard climb, just consistent. Near the top it gets a little steeper, and also protectable.

Protection

2 bolts are set above, and can be reached by hiking to the left of the climb, and traversing out onto the face. Be careful. If I remember correctly, there is no protection down low, but a small piece or two may go in up higher.

I was able to find several finger size placements (small cams, nuts, and hexes). Maybe I was following the wrong line but I found it very easy to protect. The flake at the top took a BD .1, .5, and 1. I could see the crack system to the right being less accepting of pieces though. I believe I placed 7-8 pieces on the climb. Apr 1, 2015
Not recommended when wet. May 13, 2009
A hole 15 feet off the ground showed promise for a piece, however nothing I had worked. The only piece I got in was 5 feet below the chains in the flake. I place 2 pieces (smallish nuts). So in other words. Very Runout. Sep 26, 2004
