The Seward Highway is really beautiful.

Description 

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.

Climb thin ice in a narrow right facing dihedral/chimney. After 50-60 ft pull onto a turfy ramp and finish on fun and thick WI 2. There is a good aspen tree at the top for rappel. Bring your mixed attitude as the bottom is often thin and difficult to protect without rock pro. Takes good knife blades. Good rock and exciting chimney moves make this a highway classic....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
