Boulder Falls usually has a hefty volume of water flowing over it, however when we get a few weeks of especially cold weather, the falls forms a thin veneer of ice that is climbable. The climb forms a broad, stepped formation 60-80 degrees, about 30 feet high. During most years the climb is fairly dangerous because of the large volume of water flowing underneath the ice. Be certain that the ice thickness will support your weight and swing lightly. It is possible to punch through the ice (especially at the top of the climb) and fall behind the flow into the powerful stream of water. Considering the potential dangers and the shortness of the climb, it is no mystery that this route is rarely climbed. Descent: Rappel the route on v-threads or sacrificial pro.
