The Weeping Wall Waterfalls

Passed by the spot on the way to Jasper ... didn't know that it had a name or that it was famous for something!!

Weeping Wall (water fall) pull out is where you can park and view the falls. Weeping Wall is absolutely beautiful in the winter when it's frozen. This water fall is fed by a spring higher up on the mountain that never stops flowing. The entire cliff face continually freezes into a beautiful blue wall of ice. It is considered one of the best Ice climbs in the world. During the winter months you can view ice climbers climbing the various routes on the frozen ice walls. Weeping Wall stays frozen late into the spring due to it's shaded canyon location that lacks sunlight. The initial cliff and water fall is only 1/3 of the mountains elevation. There are several benches and more falls located higher above out of sight from the viewing area.



The above photos were take on April 18 and the walls weren't weeping to much at that point but by April 22 after a good stretch of warm weather and then a good dose of rain in the mountains, things did change.
