BETA PHOTO: Red Gate topo 2014
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.
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.

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
