Description 

An area right along the highway that is known for its long slab climbs. Fun area if you can get down with the highway noise. Some of the longer single pitchers on the highway.

Getting There 

Mile 9.9 past the weigh station. Directly across from the gate that blocks access to the railroad on the other side of the highway. The gate isn't so red anymore so don't expect it to be a beacon like it used to be. Turn around and park well off the road in the grass to avoid hassles.

Climbing Season

For the Seward Highway area.

Weather station 3.0 miles from here

Progression 5.10a/b 6a+ 19 VI+ 19 E2 5b  AK : Seward Highway : Red Gate
Progression starts at the belay bolt three feet off the ground but it is best not to anchor in to avoid any possible loose rock falling down. Climb into the dihedral then cut right on the face following bolts to a couple ledges. The upper half to the route is fun and steep with a great roof crux on thin holds. Pull over the lip on a jug and finish on a exciting push to the anchor.LOCATIONProgression is the left route on the upper face and starts directly under the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
