Description

The classic ice line in Valdez!

First climbed by Lowe and Weiland on New Year's with a bivy at the second pitch cave.
Each pitch is long, 50-60 meters each, but the first and second pitches have about 40 feet of deep and steep snow to slog through at the top.

Each pitch is a broad curtain of ice and many variations do exist, so pick your line and go for it. Also, each pitch is seperated by a snow patch, so it's easy to identify how the pitches are laid out.

Location

Obvious waterfall, to the right of Bridal Veil (the other 600+ ft waterfall). Park in the pull out and hop the guardrail. Cross the river if it's frozen and you are there in less than 5 minutes.

Protection

10-12 screws.
