We climbed there on Sunday morning and it was pretty much a ghost town, one other party and us. The right side had pretty good coverage but seemed to have some air in it making it kinda funky taking screws. The first screw I place would got part way in and then just spin when it hit the air. After 4 or 5 attempts I opted to just scramble up and setup a top rope instead since it was my first ice lead of the season and I was a bit tired from snowboarding the day before. It can definitely be lead and there area number of lines you can climb on the right. The ice was solid with just a handful of hollow sections and thin spots. The other party lead the left side and it was thick enough to take shorter screws, however the ice was showing some effects of the more direct sunlight it gets in the morning. Overall fun climbing and a number of options available.
Horsetail falls had a significant amount of water flowing down the center, not sure what kind of climbing there is up there. The right side looked pretty white so possibly some ice up there but probably really aerated and we didn't bother heading up that far.
