A smooth overhanging wall with a few moderate routes and some good harder ones.

The difficult part of this climb is the bouldery moves down low over a roof. The climbing eases off a bit after that but becomes run out to the bolts. Clipping the 3rd bolt could be pretty scary if you aren't in a good stance as there may be groundfall potential.Per Scott's comments I've edited the route description to no longer reflect the R rating that this climb used to carry as it has been retrobolted to be a safer lead. Thanks Scott....[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho

The Death Fall cliff is actually the second wall you come to after heading down the first trail. The first wall is the Lower Ledge Wall. The Death Fall Wall is about 100 yards north from the staircase you descend on the first trail.

Also- Most of the routes here can be easily top-roped, as there are hangers or chains atop most of the lines.
