Sam on the sharp end

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


A quality, long, and well-bolted dry tool route. Sustained steep climbing with relatively good tool locks/jams in cracks and seams, but relatively delicate and difficult feet.


On the south side of the creek (right when hiking upstream) past Mad Dog and near, but before, the T-Bird Creek intersection. Route starts from a mound the "trail" generally goes over before the canyon wall bends sharp right into an alcove and transitions to a steep, vegetated bank. The route starts in an overhang at the corner.


12 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

The bottom of this route has some very suspect rock. If you don't like your tool placements you can swing to make them better. I hope those bolts are very long...
