ScrewsStuff for V threads
Short approach, and low commitment grade make this a popular route. The crux is the upper pillar and still turns many parties back, it (according to Jo Jo's "Waterfall Ice") can range anywhere from WI4-5
There is a walk off to the right with slight danger of terrain traps, make sure you go far enough right to avoid the cliff bands. Otherwise rap from v-threads, or trees on either side of the falls.

Climbed with Heather, ice was awesome, but the snow was wet and heavy, just right for avalanches. at least 3 came down on us while we were climbing, the last one hit Heather and buried her to her knees. Not too serious, but a little freaky. Fun day in the end.
