Agnes Vaille Falls.


This is a nice, little waterfall that is leadable. More details later.

Eds. due to a tragic rockslide on 9/30/13 killing 5 people, the government plans to close Agnes Vaille Falls indefinitely.


It is on the North side of CR-162. The route can be seen from the road. Take the Agnes Vaille trail for ~0.8 miles.


A handful of screws.

The location is off CR 162 not 362. Anchors off pine tree on the left or group of trees on the right. Good looking slings already in place with a belay loop. Easy half mile hike to the base of the climb. There is an additional flow of about 60-80 vertical feet beyond this flow. Not sure of anchors as we did not have time to explore this route.

What is the best access to top rope this fall if you can? Lots of ice but was soft for screws.

Enjoy the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs just 4 miles from the climb.
