Access Issue: The Eklutna Canyon drainage is open to climbing but is on private property belonging to Ekultna Incorporated. Details

Description [Suggest Change]

Start by climbing an easy moss/tree pitch to a big tree out left. Don't belay directly under the OW because of loose rock. The second pitch picks its way through rock and moss to the squeeze chimney. The crux is getting into the squeeze chimney. Once inside climb up to a two bolt anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

Walk up stream past TJ Swan and the OW will be visible on the right.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Cams to BD 6

Definitely a canyon classic if people aren't scared to get physical. Looks very intimidating but protects well and is quite secure. Try not to knock rocks down on your belayer, as there is a decent pile of dirt and rock and the base of the off-width.

5.8, M4, bring a single rack to BD #6 Dec 3, 2017
