Grade Route

Near Davis Creek Trailhead at designated parking lot.

This line consists of 4 separated waterfalls along Davis Creek Trail. Expect a tight trail corridor, breaking trail, tree tunneling, & ~2+hrs of total hiking time.

  1. 30+ft (no topo). Unlikely to be formed. Could be mixed climbed for the truly initiated. Gear/ grade unknown. Bolted belays are said to exist on left and right side.

  2. WI2+, 80+ft. Hike along Davis Creek Trail to "2nd Waterfall" trail marker (1+miles, ~1hrs). Steepening moderate ice ramp on right side or ramp with varying sized step on left. Belay from trees above. Descend and return to trail or ramble up south hillside to intersect trail.

  3. WI2/3, 40+ft. Continue along trail to 3rd waterfall(~30/45min). Expect short WI3 column with dry tooling potential on left or ramps & short steps on right (WI2/2+). Belay from trees above. A short walk upstream gains 4th waterfall.

  4. WI2/2+, M3/4, 75-120ft. Moderate eggshell ice to slab. Be cautious of delaminating. Belay off tree cluster to left, or top out through short rock step/roof (M3/4, WI2+ if formed). A bolt protects this exit. Top out through moderate/steep snow to belay tree with slung anchor. Belay second and rappel with one 60m rope, TR with 70m or double ropes.

Egress: Rappel top two waterfalls & Hike Davis Creek Trail back to trailhead.
