Overview

Gomar Falls. This classic is a monster slab of ice at 40meters wide, 90meters high, and 5meters thick. The rating of 3 to 3+ depends on the route and whether or not an ice screw belay is used. The first pitch has a tree to belay from on the left side, but the ice screw belay is needed if climbing up the middle.

Getting There

Parking is available at the hydroelectric power plant just off highway 11. Asking the folks at the plant for permission to park there is a smart move. The trail leading to the climb can be a fairly strenuous 1.5 mile hike depending on the snow conditions. It begins just across the highway from the parking area at the plant.

Route Description

Ascend however you feel most comfortable, there's plenty of ice to be had on this climb. Although, there is a great tree to set up a belay station for pitch one on the rock outcropping on the left. The final belay station is another stout tree near the left side at the top.
