Description 

The 19 Mile Wall is a 100+ foot cliff located as the name implies near mile 19 on the Richardson Highway. You will see this wall on the right side of the road after crossing the Sheep Creek Bridge. There is a very noticeable crack up the middle of the face and a parking area directly below the wall. The 45 minute hike through the alders may not be that appealing, but the stunning views of the Books and sounding area always make for a memorable day. If snow covers the alders, the approach is a breeze. The routes are trad between 5.7 and 5.8 with long raps, so bring two ropes or a 70m along with webbing for alders at the top of the routes.

Getting There 

Drive down the Richardson Highway. The wall is located up hill after crossing Sheep Creek. Park in the pullout directly bellow the cliff. Hike uphill 45 minutes and enjoy.

Shoop Dog 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13  AK : Anchorage & South Central A... : ... : 19 Mile Wall
This climb is located to the left of the obvious chimney/crack and is named after the belayer on the first ascent who was tied to a tree all day and never did get to climb. Start in a flaring crack that improves as you get higher. A fixed pin protects the reachy moves through the crux. Pull the crux and move into a corner stem the corner and climb the crack to the top. This route is not difficult but is fun and protects well. It should be climbed more to clean it up....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
