Starts with approximately 40 metres of low-angle approach ice or neve. Can be pitched out or not, but care should be taken where the ice may be thin and unsupportive - there can be a large volume of water running throughout the winter, and punching through would likely prove fatal. The final 55 metres generally forms up in three distinct lines. The left line (the so-called "Photographer's Gully") is the easiest, and goes at WI3. The centre and right lines should go at WI4. Be aware that topping out on the right-hand side of the falls may not provide much for a solid anchor.
