The 19 Mile Wall can be seen a few hundred feet above the highway as you head up Thompson Pass. If plowed you can park at a pullout right under the wall. Be respectful of the DOT snow plows and other drivers on the road and don’t park on the highway. This crag hosts a few moderate and difficult routes. It receives all day sun yet often has cooler temps than ice in town making it great for warm winter days. The view form all the climbs here are breath taking and will make this an outing to remember.

Getting There 

19 Mile Wall as the title suggests is located at above mile marker 19 on the Richardson Highway. Drive to the base of Thompson Pass and park at the closest pullout to the wall. Be respectful of other traffic and DOT snow plows. Hike straight up the snow to the base of the wall.

Oosik is the Eskimo name for walrus penis bone. It ascends up a right facing corner that gets narrower and steeper as it goes up. The first section is a great warm up with two crux sections both on the upper half. The corner section is a blast and offers some fine steaming and the last 30' will leave you with a good pump. Top the cliff band out and walk off right or rappel the route with V threads and alders. This climb can be done in one full 70 meter pitch....[more]   Browse More Classics in Alaska
