DescriptionThis is a great ice waterfall. Its visible from the road and is only a 5 minute walk from the car. Its pretty rarely climbed, but this is a very accessible climbing area, which means this is probably one of the most often climbed waterfalls near Bishkek. There are two variations of the route. the first goes straight up the main trunk all the way to the top. The second starts on the smaller piece of ice to the right, and you do a couple mixed moves to get over to the main trunk.
The biggest issue with this waterfall is that the volume is high enough that parts of it don't really freeze over too well. Portions of the upper part of the waterfall are very thin and brittle. This makes placing ice screws very sketchy.
