Description 

To find this route, approach the main falls as you'd be going to the falls on the river. As the trail makes a big bend to the west you cross over a culvert near the road. The climb forms from the flow coming out of this culvert in the ravine below. The climb can be seen from the northern end of the rail overlooking the falls. Set up a toprope on a tree or boulder above the climb and TR it. The actual flow is about 20' long, rounded, and wet. A variation goes up the dirt cliff to the right if you want to get your tools muddy.

This is very close to the trailhead.

Protection 

A few screws.

Toprope Protection 

Long slings for trees/boulders for TR anchor.
