Description 

The bluffs along Kachemak Bay on your way outside of town are a great ice climbing destination during the darkest time of the year, mid December to mid January. All of the climbs are mostly south facing and if there is any sun whatsoever they start to melt quickly. Act fast to enjoy these easy to access climbs and you'll be rewarded with a very unusual experience-climbing ice at sea level, on a beach!

Getting There 

Most of the climbs are accessed from Saltwater Drive. Park at the end and walk along the road back towards the highway, looking right for a path through the woods to a rappel point.

Climb low angle ice up to the start at a 15ish foot pillar. This could be the crux unless it's in pretty good. Ascend the pillar and then climb a steep curtain for 30 feet, continue up easier ice to alders....[more]   Browse More Classics in Alaska
