Grotto Falls** WI3
[Seggie abbing from the top of Grotto Falls, 2 kb]20m, 2 pitches. walk up the frozen cascade. Climb the first bulge to a platform. A set of bolts on the left can be used to establish a belay, or continue up onto the top to run into a single pitch. Again use bolts on the top left, unless the ice has buried them, then you can place a screw belay or sling off the trees.

Good nick, left hand side is steeper and more aesthetic as its closer to the rock. Lovely canyon to climb in. Novelty of walking up a frozen river to get to it. Saw the paintings on the rock on the way in aswell which was cool!
