Please leave no trace and keep a low profile to ensure further climbing access.
DescriptionStars just because I think it is pretty cool looking. It's actually pretty short (60ft) Lead up wherever looks inviting or climb up ice/concrete/cables on the left to get up top and set up a toprope on the old dam stuff. Trees also exist on either side than can be used for a belay. Leaving tat on the dam or surrounding trees is discouraged. You can rap off the handle/pipe on the climbers left.
The Dam was built in the mid to late 1920s to help divert water towards the tunnel to the Eklutna Powerhouse. The catwalk that stretches above the dam was constructed in 1933. According to the design documents the dam is 61ft high, and 98ft at the crest.
