Description

Great climb up the finger cracks of the Nugget Boulder. Accepts small- medium protection quite easily.

This route is probably the best way to access the top of the Nugget Boulder. Once on top of the Nugget, string a toprope on Banana Show (5.11c TR only).

Location

Begin in the finger crack on the Nugget's west face. A "walk-off"is possible (if climbing the Nugget as a highball boulder) but I would rather rappel the route given the mossy jump required to get down.

Protection

Small- medium cams to 1-inch, stoppers. Nice SHINY two bolt anchor on top, extend the anchor over the edge to save your rope.

Photos

Nice little rock, easy hike to access; we did it with our two year old. My first climb in Alaska since Denali in 1981, lol. Lead the 5.6 crack then toproped the 9 and 11 to the right; all worth doing. Jun 28, 2014
