Skaleek Falls is the uppermost waterfall on the middle of the three streams. The waterfall drops 79' over a double-stepped waterfall. The creek flows out of the glacier and begins its decent right next to the amazing rock formation I call the Wall of Jericho. "Skaleek" is my Americanized version of a Salish word that means "high on the mountain". This waterfall, at nearly a mile above sea level, is certainly high on the mountain so I thought the name was fitting.
