Description

Pitch one:
After following the creek to base of the obvious first fall, being P1. There is a large boulder resting on top of this fall, oriented in the middle. There is a great tree to use as an anchor just to the left of that boulder. The climbing is steep but straightforward. The steepest part of P1 is the last 15 feet.

Pitch two:
From the top of P1, you can easily see the 100' upper fall through the trees (approx. 50yds away up stream). From the base of the upper fall, you take the left route (which is essentially straight up from the center of the base). This route starts out low angle, but gets steeper the higher you go. The "crux" is the last 20' section, which gets close to vertical and narrows at the top.

Protection

Short screws usually. Occasionally (rarely) the ice will form thick enough for a 20cm to comfortably drive in, but really anything 17 and under is ideal. Also, a couple sewn runners are great for tree anchors at the top of each fall.
