My 1st waterfall : WI 3  Sucess!

WI 3 line. Thrilling! REALLY "thrilling" on the 2nd pitch as water was visibly running freely underneath the ice -- and when it was neccessary to step into 6" of rushing water through a hole in the ice at the very top. I had visions of slipping or being knocked off balance by the pouring water, thus being swept underneath the ice...but the footing was surprisingly secure. Awkward semi-mantle around / over a boulder to gain the final belay. Magical fairyland on top, with frozen pools.

Partner: Dick Walker.
