Description Suggest change

Chugach sport/mixed climbing on slightly better rock than most of the highway.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach from the Eagle River Nature Center. As counterintuitive as it sounds, do not take a left on any trail that says "Dew Mound", those will take you to the hiker's feature of Dew Mound, and not the cliff. Follow the main trail for 1.7 miles. About .3 miles before the climbers trail, you will come to an open area and campground (no ammenities), that is above the Eagle River bank, which is really obvious. The trail continues above the river and ascends a short steep hill. Shortly after the hill crest, you will then take a left onto an unmarked climbers trail, that is beaten down. The trail will lead to a talus field that is marked by cairns that will lead to the lower wall. There are three walls. The Main Wall, which is where the climber's trail terminates. The Arrowhead and Helmet Head walls are to the left. Stonemaster, located just right of the termination point, and is the obvious line, just to the left of the roof feature, on the right terminus.

See Kelsey Gray's guidebook for more information on the area.
