Tatum Falls is a fun little flow that comes in around the same time as Horsetail Falls. The climbing is characterized by short pillars and low angle ice. This area gets a lot more sun than the rest of the ice in June Lake and should not be climbed at if it is too warm.

Getting There 

At the end of the June Lake loop, where the winter closure starts, park near the power plant there. Hike through the power plant parking lot and find the tramline that climbs up towards the falls. Follow this until near the falls and then traverse over where practicable. In a low snow year, another viable option is to take the Agnew Lake trail from the Silver Lake trailhead up to the level of the falls and then traverse over.

Tatum Falls is a short and easy flow near Horsetail. It is a bit short and low angle to make an objective on its own, but it makes for a nice link-up with Horsetail or Roadside.The climbing is mostly low angle slab broken occasionally by short steep pillars. The ice gets a lot more sun than any of the other ice flows in the area and can be rather sun damaged. It is not recommended to climb here if it is warm or in direct sunlight....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
