Description

Easily the best ice climb in the logan area.
100 feet of beautiful green ice that forms quite reliably every winter, about 30 feet wide at the start and around 20 feet at the top. The first 15 feet are about 75 degrees, followed by a gully of 45 degree to 60 degree ice, with the crux 25 feet of vertical ice at the end.
There is a less vertical/direct route that ascends the left side of the falls, which decreases the rating and pump.

Easily toproped via the fat descent tree.

Location

Drive up Right Hand fork road,(or walk or snowmobile depending on road conditions. Not plowed in winter) till you pass a green sighting tube on the right side of the road, about 1 mile up. Past this tube, drive slowly for about 500 yards, looking south(right) at the cliffs for a notch in the rock with ice in it. The trees make it hard to see, but it is quite visible once you spot it. It is no more than .5 miles from the tube. Find a spot to park or ditch your transportation.

Cross the small but still challenging river via some rocks and a board that is usually present, and hike up the steep slope to the ice. 15 min. from the river to the ice.

Descent: Rap from fat tree off slings. One 60 meter is fine.

Protection

Ice screws. The ice is pretty thick. 16-19 cm screws work well.
