Description 

Great route on lower south aspect of Pk 2780 (sub peak of Begich).

Location 

Cross the Portage River direct if conditions permit. Otherwise, park at Begich-Boggs, cross lake east of bridge (upstream of outlet) where ice permits, follow river (and hillside depending on how frozen river is) on north side downstream to the climb. Climb/thrash a short section of snow/alders to the base.

Protection 

Screws, Abalakovs, Trees/Alders, possibly an existing rock anchor climber's right
