The bit at the top is real fun, rest of the climbing is par.

Solo Solo ascent by: climbn4beer on 2010-10-13 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Great rope solo route

Hit this climb on a perfect day in early October and couldn't ask for a better position. Easy, albeit loose and unpredictable, climbing made for a sweet solo route. For me the cave was just a cave but coming out at the top of the falls was sick. Route should really just be a choose your own adventure, i.e. trad/solo with maybe a couple of bolts. I found much better climbing left of the main route and the rock turned out to be better too. Rapping pulls a lot of rocks so be careful when climbing behind other parties. All in all a sweet day in one of the most beautiful locations ever!

Hmm... I thought rock quality was decent (for the Rockies). Lots of fun. I think guides set this one up so they'd have an easy but dramatic climb for average climbers.

After the traverse to the bulge just to the left of the falls, you can either take the bolts or else climb on gear as was originally intended.
