Description

Beautiful alpine rock climbing area on the Pika Glacier in Denali NP. Stellar granite in a true alpine environment offer great climbing at a variety of difficulties.

Getting There

Air Taxi from Talkeetna. Approaches are short from Pika basecamp. A hike/float out is very possible for packrafters and a classic Alaskan adventure. In short - Pika glacier to Exit Pass to the Granite Glacier to Wildhorse Pass to the Tokositna River and float to Talkeetna (2 long or 3 average days)
