Description 

Almost all of the routes in this area are better accessed in winter when you can travel across the frozen Lake. Many of the routes can only be accessed from the lake. Except on the higher points the area doesn't get any sun between October and April because of the north facing aspect. In the summer there is usually a few parties of hikers out at the lake but in there is rarely anyone else there in the winter.

Getting There 

Take a Water or air taxi from Homer to the Grewink Lake trail head at the beach and then walk the 4 mile easy trail in to the lake and Glacier.

On the North East side of the lake a thin water fall freezes up and smears down an open gulley. The ice is thin but well adhered to the rock underneath and very climbable when we climbed it. There is a few near vertical sections close to the bottom which only require 2 or three moves to get over and there is lots of opportunity for rest along the route. We rated it a W13 only because the ice is too thin for good protection and the rock along the side doesn't give much opportunity either. Otherwi...[more]   Browse More Classics in Alaska
