Tim, along with Klemen Premrl, completed the super impressive route Spray On ... Top! last winter, which climbs the full height of the waterfall in several pitches (see UKC News). The pair also added a single pitch route named Wolverine , which is a bolted sport ice climb and is graded WI11!
Normal ice routes go up to around WI7 or WI7+, but due to the super steep nature of the spray ice at Helmcken Falls, which is unique in style, the grades for these routes are a few notches higher. These routes are obviously extremely athletic and unlike normal ice climbing.
