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

Description

Not very pumpy for a dry-tool route - emphasis is on footwork. Traversing out left to the anchors is probably the crux.

Location

At the corner before the final right hand (if headed upstream) bend in the river before the dam there are two bolted routes. This is the climber's right route.

Protection

6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor
