Much of this area is in the Mount Charleston Wilderness Area, learn which crags are within our outside of it before you go. See the BLM Fact Sheet for a good overview of what it protects and what that limits, and the Forest Service page for other information.

Approach as per Big Falls. Climb the goat trail to the left of the falls , gaining the large bowl above. The ice is not very big, but forms up before anything else on the mountain. We climbed here on new years day 2006. Not a drop of new snow had falled all year, yet a massive snowfield remained from the previous winter. No ice was visible, but I hiked up to where is usually is and was shocked and delighted to find a really, really frozen waterfall guarded by a 50 foot high overhanging moat of frozen alpine ice. We set a toprope on this sunny and steep-esque feature and ran laps all day! Prehaps the most rare, crazy ice of my life!!!!
