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

Description

Start off by climbing some WI2 that leads to a WI3 pillar. Snow can develop on this route pretty good if a snow storm has just came through.

Location

Hike 45 minutes through the canyon to reach this climb. It is about 200 meters past the Ripple on the right hand side.

Protection

Bring some ice screws and a 70m rope if you have one. Three bolt anchor on the right allows for a rappel.

Last weekend, we were bombarded by a good amount of debris as we climbed the snow slope to the base of this climb. A chunck of rock slightly smaller than a helmet almost took out my partner before we reached the bottom of the flow. After constant bombardment from the gully above, we decided to turn back and do another climb. Apr 4, 2012
