Cliffside Creek is the section of wall located, as the name implies nearest to the Creek. This area has about twenty routes in the mid difficulty range. With the rock quality being mostly good combined with the shortest approach time this may be the most popular section of the crag. Nearly all the climbs here use a combination of trad gear and bolts to make it up to fixed anchors.

Getting There 

Park next to Purinton Creek and scramble along the base of the cliff a few hundred yards to find the obvious belay ledges. The left most routes start under a large pine tree on top of the wall and the right most climbs are located on a steep section of wall next to the gully above the end of the parking area.

ITX starts form a lower belay area down in the trees. Climb up a right arching three inch crack that passes underneath a scary looking boulder sticking out of the roof. Climb 25' to the first bolt/chain link then stem up onto a steep section of wall protected with old pitons. Climb past three small roofs to gain a large dihedral protected by more chain links. Finish in a dihedral that brings you to the top of the climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in Alaska
