Trip: Mist Falls - ?

 

Date: 12/6/2013

 

Trip Report:

The Columbia River Gorge has some ice! Mist Falls, while a little bit wet, is climbable. A nice, easy 1 pitch route.

 

Gear Notes:

A few screws.

Approach Notes:

From Portland, take exit 28 to Bridal Veil Falls and continue east on Historic Highway a couple miles to a pullout on the right just before Wahkeena falls. A trail leads up to the base of the route.

Thanks! I found this link, and, though it doesn't say "Mist Falls," I think it's beta on the same place

Looks like there's potential for multiple other moderate lines there. You by chance get a look at any of them, aside from the one you said had some sketchy icicles hanging above it?

 

I have not climbed ice in the Gorge, which is why I have so many questions.

Was there the past two days. Both sides are fat as all hell and were getting fatter today. Roped up and climbed the left side, placed 3 screws, belayed up high to the left, escaped left and downclimbed. Ice was thick enough for a v-thread but didn't have the tool...

 

The right side was fun also, long traverse right through crazy 4" diameter iced over slide alder then easy down climbing. SO AWESOME!
