DescriptionThis is probably one of the most popular climbs in Alaska. This is an nice WI3 climb that is in every year.
LocationDescend into the canyon, and then hike for forty five minutes and this climb will be on your right. You can't miss it!
ProtectionThis route is a beautiful climb, bring screws, any length will do. It can be done on a single 60m rope usually. The anchors were replaced with new stainless hardware on 12/13/2015.
An anchor exists at the top of the climb on the left as well as a second anchor that is located on the right of the climb.
Rappel the route to a V-thread with a 60m rope, or to the second anchor with a 70m rope, or rap the entire route with two ropes.
