Takakkaw Falls Route
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
12th Pitch- 30m- 5.6/ I guess folks don’t always do this pitch, but they should to say they completed the route and to see the source of the falls, if nothing else. Angle up fairly easy rock with large holds as it moves left and tops out amongst some trees with rappel tat (only takes a one rope rappel from here versus the published recommendation of a two rope rappel). Bring up the 2nd here and then continue scrambling up easy terrain to the source of the falls, the glacier melt from Mount Daly….a pleasant stream creating tons of froth as it starts making several aggressive dips to the falls below.
