Trip: Bridal Veil Falls - Various Falls

Date: 1/7/2017

Trip Report:
Me and a buddy climbed Bridal Veil Falls yesterday near Index.

We top roped the main falls twice. The tree anchor is about 210 feet from the base of the falls so bring a really long runner to extend or it is a pain! The ice was wet and lots of water was running behind so we weren't too sure about pro.

Main Falls:

The climbers left section of the falls looked good too, another group lead it:

Then we lead up the upper falls:

We hiked up the creek bed finding another WI3 falls above:

We completed the hike up to the lake and took the trail out. A great day with lots of ice mileage.

Gear Notes:
Ice gear. 60m twin ropes. Looong runner useful for TR.

Approach Notes:
Walked the trail, all booted out.

Right on. Didn't even know the falls froze over, however that does make sense. Now I'm wishing I took advantage of the ice opportunities.

Looks like fun. tup

Nice work! Looks like a good day. With the cold snap recently I'm surprised it was as wet as it was.
