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.

James.houghton 2 Mar Lead Climbed the falls as one pitch. Bolts 'half way' were iced over, so didnt see any reason not to do as one pitch. Be warned, it is definitely not 20m, but more like 45m to do in one pitch. Pro is good and felt WI3 today. Still dripping even though it was approaching -30. Continued up the drainage to some other smaller steps of WI3+, then WI2. Added a bit more to the day.

geoff.comley 17 Mar, 2012 Lead O/S 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!
