The Amendment is just above Boulder Falls 50 feet from the waters edge and 75-100 yards from the falls. The problem traverses into an existing boulder problem called Freedom. Start on the left side of the boulder and traverse on bad slopers into Freedom. Finish Freedom. Freedom is rated V10, with The Amendment being more difficult, so the V10/11 grade is given. Maybe easier, may be harder than V10/11.


2 pads are fine.

Hey Dan, this sounds cool. I'm assuming it's on the west side of the river uphill from the falls? Aug 27, 2004
Exactly. It is facing the river. Aug 30, 2004

More specific beta for locating the boulder. On the hike up to the Plotinus Wall (Lower Boulder Falls), there's a sizeable boulder at the base of the talus, just west of the creek with an obvious cave, facing south. Start in the middle of the roof and slap the lip, struggle over. For the V11 start, use Dan's directions. Sep 3, 2004
Great job, Dan. This is a fun and challenging line. Sep 9, 2004
In my opinion, Freedom is a V9. Mar 21, 2007

Lost a black and gray BD pack full of gear when chucking a crash pad down the ice chute past The Keyhole. Pad went rogue and tumbled down the falls...my pack fell out at some point. Might be in the falls, might be around The Keyhole; I unfortunately couldn't find it. If anyone comes across it, please email me at mgerken86@gmail.com. Thank you! Nov 22, 2018 · Temporary Report
