The Blade 5.10+, as seen from the P1 belay of The ...

Register with the NP Mountaineering Headquarters in Talkeetna, AK before climbing in the park!


The Blade is a one-pitch variation start to The Jester (III 5.10). An excellent thin-hands to hands flake/crack curves its way up an orange colored wall ~20' right from the start of The Jester (V-shaped cracks).


Starts in a toe of clean white rock near the left side of the east face. Rappel from fixed slings/anchors along The Jester with a single 60m rope


Standard rack with extras in the thin-hands to hand sizes.
