Description 

Mile 2.2 past the Weigh Station. A secluded area that usually free of the noise of the highway. Usually relatively wind free as well. Can be dry if it is raining due to the tree cover and angle of the rock. Usually shady and if it is nice out you can count on seeing at least one other party.


Getting There 

At mile 2.2 from the weigh station you will see a large grassy ramp. Turn around if coming from Anchorage and park off the road a bit. Head up the faint trail until it forks. Pivot Point is the right area once you reach the fork and upper pivot point is another 5 minute hike up the left fork.

The most obvious climb as you pop out of the trail to the rock face. Great first sport lead as it is rather safe for the highway. Bring slings for the anchor as it is just two bolts. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
