This route is a classic; its size, visibility, and once in a blue moon trait of actually being in are the reasons that come to mind. You need to hit it during a cloudy cold snap since it faces south. When I did it, it was pretty mushy.
Tucked back in the east corner of Ouray, Cascade Falls can be seen from almost anywhere in town. Drive up 8th Ave as far as you can. Follow the packed trail and signs to the falls.
Two bolt anchor in shale ledge to left at top of first pitch. I used pins for anchor at top of the 2nd pitch.
