It flows from the mountains' southern side into Glencar Lough. With a height of 150 metres (490 ft), the waterfall is higher than Powerscourt Waterfall. However its flow is weather dependent, flowing for about 200 days per year and ceasing to flow following periods of dry weather. The waterfall's name comes from the phenomenon where southerly winds sometimes blow the water backwards up and over the cliff edge. A public hiking trail has been established allowing access close to the base of the falls.
