A group of 4 took us 50 mins from car to car. We rapped just once down. Strong Class C conditions currently with all of the snowmelt, although each continuing week will see less and less. 3/2 wetsuits required at the minimum. You will get soaked. Bring a helmet too as the water force feels like it's cracking your skull in 2 pieces.

We removed ALL of the webbing from the falls, as it is now fully bolted. One on top of the rock is the 1st pair of bolts, and the 2nd is at the start of the last tier.

Lots of fun rappelling down the frozen waterfall! Did it without getting wet. Bring crampons! We anchored off the tree at the top and did it in one rappel. Wasn't sure on the length, so we used a 60 m rope and a tag line. We had plenty of rope coiled at the bottom. The middle anchor was buried under ice, it was visible but not accessible. That being said you have to do this as one big rappel. (at least during the winter) This was a fun short trip close to home and a great way to check the canyon skills during winter!

Made it in two rappels, maybe you can down climb the first one? Anchors were good, R1 (rap from tree) and R2 there is a large chokestone .The water level is low you can straddle the falls. No wet suit needed.

Snow melt hasn't quite happened yet. Less than calf deep, no wetsuit needed. Graffiti on top of the falls in purple calling it "stoner falls", unfortunately. The flow will be greatly increasing in about a week or two.

My friend Ian and I did it on the 23rd, and the webbing up by the first tree was removed (good!), but the anchor at the 2nd tier of the waterfall was messy. We removed a lot of it, and left just one loop around the rock (red webbing). We didn't replace it but we did make it tidy. People try to extend it this anchor, but it's a easy rope pull without extending it. I wore a 2/1mm shortie and was just fine, however my friend wore a 3mm hyperflex. The falls are declining pretty fast. Get in there quick, before it's just a trickle. Here's a few pics joined in with ghawks pics: http://www.bogley.com/forum/showthread.php?56834-Rocky-Mouth-Falls
