Of the two obvious waterfalls, Henry's is the one on the left. The route can vary in line and difficulty as it often forms up as a 40 foot wide sheet, which makes it an excellent ice climbing instruction area for large classes or groups. Rappell from the trees.

3 out of 5 stars Scared the crap out of myself

I have yet to find somebody who agrees, but for me Henry's is tougher than WI2. This was my first ice lead (after having TR'd the climb several times) and it scared the living piss out of me. The angle gradually steepens until the final bit, which is damn near vertical. I placed too many screws, wore myself out, over-gripped, got cold as hell, had to run out the last 20 feet, knocked a death block off that nearly hit my belayer, and came within a millimeter of puking at the top as I shook so bad I had to wait before tying into the alders.

Maybe it's not really that bad, maybe it was all in my head. Have to go back, I guess.
