Description

between 12 and 20 east of Valdez, Alaska is the Keystone Canyon. also known as Mecca to ice climbers.
while skiing seems to be the major winter draw to this area, the big multi-pitch ice routes have been drawing customers since the mid-70's. Ice climbing festivals started here in 1983 and much of the activity was fueled by the late Andy Embeck.

Getting There

fly to Anchorage. catch a RT 45 minute flight with ERA for about $250 or do the 5-6 hour drive from Anchorage. hundreds of ice routes abound; some to the west in Mineral Canyon are walking distance from downtown.
