The bottom pitch is a large flow that splits in two. The left side is steep solid WI3 to 3+/4- depending on conditions; the right side is good WI2 and leads directly up the longest stretch of ice above.
The higher flow is a narrow WI1 with a couple WI2 lumps along the way. It can be climbed to the point where the outlet trail reaches the open slab, about 1/8 mile below the pond.
Note that there are several options for mixed climbing to the left of the falls, both at the bottom and near a few of the steeper spots higher up.
Be aware that currently, the start of this route and the access path described is on private property. Please tread carefully, and do not posthole in ski trails.
Rappel with a single rope is possible if one does only the first pitch; for those climbing the entire flow, use any of the hiking trails to descend.
