The Seward Highway is really beautiful.


The Seward Highway offers a range of ice climbs all the way from Anchorage to Seward. Climbs range from WI2 - WI5. The climbs usually form around late November and last through late March or until it warms up. The only concern you will have on some climbs are the cars passing five or ten feet from you. Just watch yourself and you will be fine.

Getting There 

Drive five minutes south outside of Anchorage on the New Seward Highway and the climbs start on the left hand side of the road right after the weigh station.

Candyland WI4  AK : Anchorage & South Central I... : Seward Highway
Candyland is good all around climb that features everything. It has great ice, thin ice and even mixed condition. The ice ranges from WI3-WI4 with some small mixed sections usually at the top of the first pitch. Most parties climb this route in three pitches and rappel the last pitch from alders and v-thread the rest, however, a walkoff is available to the right. Other shorter climbs to the left and right of Candyland exist....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
