Description

People that climb in the Anchorage area always talk about doing Tunnel Vision, but what about Rebirth??!!! This climb should not be missed. Start at a wide crack do some 5.10 climbing up a flake. Next, chicken wing a (usually wet) pod. Pull into the pod and rest. Next, hand jam the splitter that traverses under the big roof above your head. Clip a fixed nut and try to hold on. Get another rest on a big ledge before squeezing yourself into the roof. Tall people might find the squeeze the crux. Once you are in the roof traverse out towards the gully and top out to clip a new two bolt anchor.

Location

This gem is found on the left side of the upper Catch the Wave area. Start on a wide crack the size of a #5 BD cam. A 2 bolt anchor can be used for lowering or rappelling.

Protection

One fixed nut, double set to 3 BD, but a #5 BD is optional at the beginning.

Best pitch in Hatcher Pass! Crux is either at the arching hand crack or the squeeze up top. Protect the final moves to the anchor with a red C3 in the crack directly above you as you exit the squeeze. Sep 7, 2015

A mythical route with many opportunities to cut loose. Feels like sustained 10+ to me. Jul 15, 2018
