There are endless variations to climb here, especially when conditions are fat. If conditions allow it, you can essentially start climbing at the first fall (approx. 100 yds from the parking lot), and follow the stream all the way up, climbing each fall as you go.

Depending on the chosen line and the conditions, the difficulty can range from easy WI2- to steep WI3+

Some of the pools along the creek are deceptively deep, especially in the "canyon" like areas of the stream, so be wise when following the creek. A climber fell through the ice into the freezing water a couple winters ago. He was the last of several climbers who were taking turns crossing the ice to climb a pillar. It seemed stable and was thought to be shallow underneath, but it ended up being a deep pool and the climber was completely submerged. The group had to work to get him out of the water and back to the car as quickly as possible. Be safe!


If conditions are good, then a standard ice rack will suffice. There are plenty of trees off to the sides that you can sling for anchors.
