Description

This is just a small bowl holding some ice. Walking in from the power plant, you will run into this waterfall first. It is hard to see all of it from above. As the approach trail splits, go left to come in at the top of the falls, just like heading to Ames Upper Falls. Take the fork to the right to come into the bottom of the practice area. A couple of different variations can be climbed. The main waterfall is in the center and a minor flow comes down from the right. This is an excellent climb for a first lead or a fun cruise as a solo. See Colorado Ice Climber's Guide by Cameron Burns - 1997 as a reference. Enjoy.

Protection

Ice screws and slings for the trees at the top are just fine.

Toprope Protection

Long slings are all you need. Be careful setting the anchor up. Don't fall.
