Valdez Area Rock Rock Climbing
Approaching the Republic of Boulder.
This area encompasses the Valdez and Thompson Pass rock climbing areas. The rock tends to be a little chossy, but the scenery is unbeatable. The majority of the climbing is in the Thompson Pass area, but there is a little to be found in Valdez itself. If you are coming to town bring your gear for a great day out on the rocks.
From Anchorage take highway 1 to Glennallen then take highway 4 to Valdez.

Climb 20' vertical face to the base of a large roof. From here, cut right along bolt line out and through the lid and onto vertical face climbing. Slings on the lower clips will keep rope drag down for the upper half. Then enjoy the second 50' of mellower climbing to the anchor. Keep an eye out for ledges, but dont freak out. They are well-protected for a cool head that wants to enjoy a great climb....[more] Browse More Classics in AK
