Description Suggest change

This beautiful, secluded waterfall is located in a towering red amphitheater 3/4 miles further up the creek above Avocado Gully, and it's well worth the easy walk. Steeper than it looks, the flow should offer varied climbing on engaging features. Anchor atop the ice or on trees 30 feet back.

With some extension a 70m rope barely touches down from the tree on the right. To descend, rappel or walk off to climber's right, then retrace your path down the drainage and rappel down Avocado Gully.

Location Suggest change

Climb Avocado Gully, then continue up the main drainage to the right. After the cliffs end, exit the creek bottom and hike along the berm on the right, which is mostly flat and, thanks to abundant aspen, uncharacteristically casual for drainage trekking in the area. Reach the climb in the obvious amphitheater after 3/4 miles.

There's a fair amount of steep terrain above the drainage and at least one notable avalanche path en route, though it doesn't appear to go big very often. Best to avoid during high avalanche danger regardless.

Snowshoes recommended in normal winter conditions.

Protection Suggest change

A 70m rope, screws, and anchor extension.
