Hey ya'll, I've been climbing in Alaska for many years now. I have done my share of developing too. I am filming a mini documentary on the history of bouldering in South Central Alaska. I've been reading all I can find on it, and there is some information in the guide book and on the web, but not as much as I hoped. If anyone has a unique story or important history about bouldering in Alaska, then please drop it in the comments! I know there is a rich history from my time here, and I do not want the stories or the characters lost to the annals of bouldering history.
Anchor Point boulder down on the KP comes to mind. I don’t have any interesting stories but it has a bit of history and if you’re filming, Anchor River is a beautiful spot. If you want a segment on future development, head out to Captain Cook in Nikiski (fat bike is a good way to travel the beach here at low tide)
