Description 

Since it's a glacier the routes can range from very easy to extremely hard. It just depends on how crazy you decide to be that day. You can set up some nice top rope setups on some crazy overhanging stuff and try your skills out.

Location 

The whole glacier!

Protection 

Ice screws. Bring cord or something to make your anchors with.

As of June 2016 there are 3 main top-rope walls easily accessible. Compressor wall is almost directly East of the giant dirt mound visible from the parking area. Elephant wall is mostly South of the mound but is melting rapidly and no longer a major destination. By far the most popular as of late June is Lakeside (aka Rescue Wall) which has short easy walls, a couple near-vert routes and a large section of overhanging ice of varying difficulty. Lakeside is often occupied by one or more parties.
Kraken wall (on the right as you approach the ice-fall, large face visible from the parking area) has been top-roped by one guiding company as well, is also frequently used as a lower station.
Several Crevasses exist in the ice-fall as lowers as well.

I recently wrote about my experience coming to the Matanuska for the first time and why I stayed. This is a beautiful place!
