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

Description [Suggest Change]

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

Location [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor
