The first part is Salmon Creek Falls we made it to be 670 feet

Nice TR! Sounds sick! Does that waterfall ice over completely during the winter?

Great report!  It's really impressive that you keep track of all the details while also managing to stay in one piece.

This canyon is a "little Yosemite" for sure.

I don't think it does, not to the point where it's climable.  Unless, of course,  some freak cold spell comes in.
