Description:

Several routes can be climbed on the large buttress above and behind the falls. find the Split Rock trail atop the cliffs to the right of the falls and follow it for 30 or so minutes until you're at the top of the 2nd, and larger of the two buttresses above the falls on the west side of the creek. there's a big boulder sitting right on top for an anchor. Bring a 20' cordolette to sling it. There's a fun 5.7ish crack system that runs straight up the front of the buttress, and a harder roof just to the immediate left of that route. In the winter, the falls freeze up and offer a 2-tiered pitch of WI2+. if it's thin, the right side of the upper tier will take a small cam or two, if memory serves me. You can hike up from either side and set-up a TR from a tree.

Descent Options:

Rock climbs- use trail from top. Ice-rap from small tree 15 feet back on right side of creek or walk off around the right side, traversing on the trail above the cliffs and descending one of a couple of increasingly easy gullies.
