A sustained cold weather diversion. The falls probably don't freeze up solid enough to climb very often. When they do, it still might not be worth the effort.

Short approach from the standard Lisa Falls parking lot.

Crux may be just gettin' started. Thin ice, high water flow, and scrappy lower angle rocky diversions right and left.

Take care as its easy to punch through the ice and that water is brrr cold.


This is the ice route which follows the streamcourse and falls. Only sustained cold will produce something remotely resembling an ice climb.

I seem to dimly recall that we down climbed, and, it was scary (high creek flow under thin ice on a very cold day with the finish over a deepish pool of water).


Ahh, maybe don't bother or carry a selection of short screws. No fixed anchors noted. May be able to tie some brush off left or right.
