Description

Mellow, very picturesque climb. Many options in the immediate area.

Second pitch (Upper Pine Creek Falls) recommended as well.

Location

From Pine Creek Trailhead, walk 1 mile. There will be multiple climbs on your left (including hard mixed problems). This one goes up the gully to the right of a large stone outcropping.

Protection

Standard ice rack.

Re: the lower-right branch of Pine Creek Falls, which is the line pictured in the photos above:

Climbers expecting WI2 all the way to the top are in for a bit of a shock at the final bulge below the anchor. It's 15 ft or so of near vertical ice and can't be seen from the base of the climb. Sep 10, 2014
