There are two approaches to the falls MORE INFO >>>


This waterfall has no official name, but is known to the locals as ¨graffiti Falls¨. The name says it all, its a very popular place with the locals. Downside is,most of the place is tagged up making it difficult to climb. The good thing is, us climbers have access to the very little ¨untouched¨ rock there is left, thanks to our equipment. Its usually very sunny, and semi crowded especially on fridays and on weekends. PREPARE TO BE SPECTATED.

Hi locals! Please see the photos I posted today about our climbing activity here in the '70's. We found a dead horse at the base of the cliff that fell in and gradually decomposed over time. This is the reason for the name we gave the area. At the time there were no homes in the area and no evidence of any climbing in the past, and certainly no graffiti, so it is reasonable to conclude this latest name was created after our presence there.
