[TR] Newberry Crater - Paulina Falls - Main Falls 1/1/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: Newberry Crater - Paulina Falls - Main Falls

 

Date: 1/1/2013

 

Trip Report:

Here's another look at Paulina & current conditions. This was my first time ice climbing in central Oregon. Woot! My partner & I had a great time doing laps on the left side of the main falls. We climbed this formation in 3 different lines. The ice is plenty thick on the left & gets very thin toward the center. We also discovered a cool cave behind the falls. I wish I would have taken a picture from further back; so you could see the whole thing... I hope you enjoy what I did manage to capture. Cheers!

Gear Notes:

We TR'd using trees above the falls. Bring long webbing/cord if you plan to do this (40-50 ft for each tree you want to use).

 

Approach Notes:

Park at 10 mile & cruise the snowmobile trail for about 2 miles to the overlook.
