Eager Beaver

5.11d, Sport, Alpine, 80 ft (24 m),  Avg: 2 from 2 votes

Alaska > Anchorage & S C… > Valdez Area Rock > Airport Heights

Description

This route follows the long broken aret on the left end of the cliff two a two bolt anchor. Three crux sequences are off the ground, the ledge and approaching the finish. Due to rope drag it is best to descend down the face and have a second person clean the draws or re climb the route. This may very well be the best climb on the cliff and is well worth the fight.

Protection

12 bolts, 2 bolt chain anchor.

[Hide Comment] excellent climbing to the grass ledge, then the climbing is rather spooky and a fall could result in an injury. May 31, 2016
