Steph and I tackled The Great White Icicle on Saturday, August 25 2012.
The Icicle is a pretty straightforward route. Rope management proved to be the biggest challenge. We did it a little differently than described on Climb-Utah.
All rappels were down the east side of the falls (RDC):
R1: 50 feet
R2: 140 feet
R3: 200 feet
R4: 200 feet
R5: 100 feet
I think this is the easiest way to do the route. Rappel #3 on the west side of the falls is in an awkward spot and easy to miss. I missed it, but spotted another anchor on the east side of the falls, so it wasn't a big deal.
The Icicle was a great way to spend a hot summer afternoon!
