The Eklutna Canyon drainage is open to climbing but is on private property belonging to Ekultna Incorporated. Details

Description

Mad Dog is a good climb that offers good protection. In years where it is a bit warm, the bottom of the climb might not develop, so it may require some mixed climbing.

Location

Descend into the canyon, and hike ten minutes until this climb comes into view on the south side of the canyon.

Protection

Bring some ice screws, at least a few shorties and maybe even a specter, this is often thin at the bottom. Nice alders exist at the top for a top rope or rappel.

I disagree that Mad Dog offers good protection, at least whenever I've seen it! Run out on thin ice, at least until you get to the upper half. Oct 3, 2007
