Description 

Climb the undulating flow up and left along a ramp, over a flap up right and back up left to the top of the flow.
V1 Northeast Curtain WI4: The left end of this flow drops over a 25' high vertical wall.
V2 Northeast Corner WI3/MI 4: The corner above V1 is a good TR option. In fat years, it's a stiff WI3; in lean years, it is a pumpy mixed line.
Note that in very fat years, the flow may spill over the front of the steep left wall. This is a very enjoyable TR variation, with a curtained overhang at its base.

Location 

Follow the stream running below the Waterfall Wall north for 7 minutes. Where it turns abruptly away from the mountain, cross it and continue another 7 minutes. If you reach a large boulderfield, you have gone too far.
The flow is wide and low-angle.
Descent: Rappel.

Protection 

Ice screws and runners.
