Leading Candyland!


Candyland is good all around climb that features everything. It has great ice, thin ice and even mixed condition. The ice ranges from WI3-WI4 with some small mixed sections usually at the top of the first pitch. Most parties climb this route in three pitches and rappel the last pitch from alders and v-thread the rest, however, a walkoff is available to the right. Other shorter climbs to the left and right of Candyland exist.


To reach Candyland drive about thirty minutes south of Anchorage on the Seward highway. You will have to park on the shoulder to and hike across the railroad tracks. PLEASE CONTACT THE ALASKA RAILROAD REAL ESTATE DEPARTMENT FOR A PERMIT TO CLIMB CANDYLAND so other ice climbers can continue to enjoy this climb.


Bring ice screws and a set of stoppers. Be sure to bring v-thread material for the rappel.
