Loves Way.

WI6-, Trad, Ice, 350 ft, 2 pitches,  Avg: 3 from 2 votes
FA: Andrew Embick & Carl Tobin, March 1980
Alaska > Anchorage & S C… > Anchorage & S C… > Valdez > Keystone Canyon


Love's Way celebrates the wedding of one of the first ascent members. The ice rarely reaches the base of the route but in the right conditions it creates a steep and overhanging technical climb. Stem and pull through delicate ice up this amazing fetcher to the alders on top of the Keystone Canyon Walls.


Right side of the Canyon 13.80 miles from the intersection at Airport Road and the Richardson Highway.
This ice is located hight on the canyon wall to the right of Greensteps. Park in the Bridelvail parking lot.


Protect with ice screws, walk off right or rapell on alders or Vthreads.
