Well travelled and obvious line up three good cascades of ice. The final tier can be linked as one pitch with a smaller cascade on the right currently containing a small icy cave big enough for a couple to stand in.

Three main pitches of ice with a near vertical move on each. No overhangs.

Easy walk in up from the car park. The route is roughly level with the picnic benches at the foot of the ski slope. Descent links with the path to Easy Rider which is the next climb to the right as viewed from the car park.

wjcdean 7 Feb, 2017 AltLd O/S after quite a lot of snow and warm temperatures I wasn't sure we'd get any climbing done this week, but we went for a look anyway and actually it was in good condition. a bit of running water but nothing to worry about really. went way too far right trying to find it though and ended up going up the descent path. 10 minute approach quickly turned into 40 minutes. headlines: lovely route! lead odd pitches. bolts and trees for belays and relatively short pitches make this a friendly route.
