Description

The right side of a small waterfall that is the prominent feature of the Upper Gorge. The waterfall proper forms a fin with two distinct climbs, this climb goes up the depression on the right side. This is a good introductory climb as it is easily top ropeable, provides a number of stances along the way to rest. Depending on the amount of snow and ice fall there can be a considerable pile at the base of the climb that makes belaying fun. This route usually is snagged by groups that run laps so get there early or take a number.

Location

Upper gorge, almost to the amphitheater. Identified from above by a small stream that runs out over the edge of the gorge. From the river bed, it is a prominent fin that juts out before the amphitheater.

Protection

Top rope, screws if you really want to lead. Bring long runners or a cordalette or two to setup the top rope. Trees are abundant and reasonably close to the top of the climb.
