DescriptionColumbine Falls is located a couple hundred feet directly above the main climbs at the chain up station. It can be approached by topping out on one of the climbs on the lower cliff and then bushwhacking your way up the slope.
This year the start has a vertical, little, 10' section. Some years this part is rock. An alternate, lower angled start is to the right. Once on the climb, it is a full pitch grade three cruiser. It could be broken into two pitches with a belay from the pine tree where the climb turns right and gets a bit steeper.
You can rap down from trees on top to a narrow ramp right of the climb. Be careful, as this has water running under it.
ProtectionColumbine Falls can get way run out. It takes anywhere from 2 to 6 screws, all depending on your comfort level.
