Extremely fun. P2 is often a snow slog, P1 and P3 are both challenging in different ways.
Be careful of thin ice at any time of year. If you've never climbed an active waterfall this might not be a good one to start on unless you have good, recent beta that it's solid.

|Excellent First and Third Pitches, 2nd you don't really need ropes for depending on the conditions. One of my favorite Ice Climbs in the ADK's.|

|Good, but not what I'd call a "classic".|

I think its "history factor" also adds into its designation as a "classic".
Finally, and no one's mentioned this in COMMENTs: In my opinion, the last 30 ft or so of the last pitch has gotten more difficult (more "technical") after Hurricane Irene, while the lower section of the last pitch has gotten easier.
