Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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.
