Description 

The tunnel wall has a vertical 100+' face of rock offering rock climbing in the spring and summer and mixed climbing year round. It is located in Keystone Canyon, yet despite this, the wall is sheltered from the wind, receives great midday/afternoon sun in the fall, spring, and summer and is steep enough to often stay dry when the weather is on the damp side. The routes are generally long and steep, so be ready to enjoy a bit of a pump and utilize the ledges and caves for a good rest when you can. All routes are sport, and the rock quality is good. This is a newly developed wall, so there may still be some dirt and small, loose pieces, but much cleaning has gone into the area, and we are very happy with the outcome. All routes can be ether rock climbed in the summer or dry tooled during the winter months!!

Getting There 

Drive 15 miles out of town into Keystone Canyon. Park in the large pullout in front of the Old Railway Tunnel on right. The climbs are located on the 100' wall overlooking the parking lot. The approach trail starts at the mouth of the tunnel. The approach time is 1 minute.

The second to the far right climb on the Tunnel Wall, this route starts by stemming across to a ledge at the first clip. It then follows the bolts straight up to the finish line. Two cruxes are located on the upper half of the route after leaving good rests. This is the easiest route on the face and has a high number of positive holds. This along with closer bolts than some other routes make it a great warm-up or first time dry tool experience. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Alaska
