This flow is on the left hand side of the river. It is a good first lead. Climb low angle ice from just above the creek, there is a nice steeper section that leads to more low angle....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK

Harry's Big Adventure and Split Finish are both around 500 ft climbs. Couple other multipitch routes in this spectacular canyon. Plan on long days & don't forget your headlamp. I've never hiked out in daylight.
