Waterfall

Two O'Clock Falls is a great intro to multi-pitch ice climbing that is away from the crowds. It's a quick 1.25km to the climbing area.

Park at the "Siffleur Falls Trail Staging Area" parking lot on the east side of the highway. From there you will need to carefully cross the highway to the West side. The waterfall is visible from the highway. There is a gated road that you will walk up. The land on the West side of the highway is a traditional First Nations area so stick to the dirt road and please be respectful.

Walk down the road for about 700 metres, from there you should find a few trails through the woods that lead up to the waterfall. It doesn't really matter which one you take. The last 200 metres of the trail are a bit steeper, depending on conditions it might be a good idea to put on your crampons at the base of the hill.

Once at the base of the waterfall, you have a couple of options. The middle section is generally the easiest tends to be VERY wet. The left and right sections are slightly steeper but the ice is of better quality. As a whole the climb varies between WI2 and WI3.

The top is marked by three pieces of cloth wrapped around a tree. To get down you can either build a V-thread (if you know how to) or rappel off of the large trees on either side of the climb. Rappelling off the trees is ideal because you don't leave any climbing cord behind, which means less litter.
