DescriptionThis is a classic 100 foot ice flow below Notchtop. I've heard that this flow can be twice as wide as it is tall. There is a where it is even wider. It can also be anemic, perhaps more so in early to mid-winter. Avalanche conditions can exist.
Park at Bear Lake. Hike toward Lake Helene/Notchtop. Go past and right of Lake Helene. This can be windscoured. Traverse right and down to exit.
Per Eli Helmuth: Grace Falls come into shape more in late winter/ early spring. March or April when there is more water flow over the falls seems to make the difference for Grace.
