First on the route, thankfully, as looking up at the route, once we had descended, we counted 26 people on the falls, with another 8 waiting...

Counted about 35 people on it at one time, chose a line that started up the right. Was a bit wet and falling apart. Amazing situation but disappointingly easy.

Another nice solo. The steep bit was very shortlived. Most of it was very flat shelves. Even though water was running down the middle, enough ice everywhere to climb at will. It didn't take too long. Just under an hour with a break for a sip of water in the middle of the fall.
