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

Description 

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.

Location 

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.

Protection 

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...
