Access Issue: Always check SEKI road conditions and peregrine closures Details
Ok, so it isn't on the Watchtower but near -about another 1/2 mile or less at the back of the basin. There is a WI5 on the left often with a freestanding pillar, a WI4 in the center near a dihedral corner, and a WI3 on the right up a couple steps and up inconsistent thin ice, with other variations ranging in difficulty. Walk off west or rappel from trees. Assess avalanche conditions on the slopes above.
This is a common summer and winter hike in Sequoia starting from the Lodgepole trailhead. Follow the stream from the parking lot crossing the bridge after a 1/4 mile or so and heading up canyon following the stream to the falls. At the end of the trail climb down and across questionable snow bridges to the ice.
