Description 

A nice collection of moderate sport routes. As with nearly all Seward Highway climbs, it can be quite windy, and have some cruddy rock, so wear your helmet!

Getting There 

Mile 4.7 on the Seward Highway, look for a pullout parking area on the north side of the highway. Walk down the grassy area to the east (along the highway) to find the climbs.

The best rock quality out on the highway (second pitch)? Actually a fun multipitch although on the easy side, Sunshine Ridge is a great afternoon climb.
