Bridalveil Falls

Crag: Agawa Canyon

Rating: WI3, 80m

Route Description
The most spectacular (and central) falls in Agawa Canyon, and the one that the Snow Train stops at so the tourists can snap photos.

Pitch 1 - WI3, 40m. Climb any number of variations to the huge ledge, and belay in the cedar trees on the left side.

Pitch 2 - WI3, 40m. Wade through deep snow back to the route, and onto the steepening ice. TAKE CARE! Many have punched through thin ice to look down at the falls rushing just below. Climb up through the bulging middle of the route, and arc up to the left to easier terrain.

Descent: Rappel off big tree to the belay station on pitch 1, then rap again from there.

First Ascent: Shaun Parent, Chris Lloyd, December 1988
