Description 

This are encompasses the single pitch routes under the ledge system that runs across the crag. The routes here are not as overhanging as many of the others in this area and most routes have some loose rock on them. That being said the climbs are still fun by Alaskan standards and I have had a great time climbing everything on this section of the crag.

Getting There 

The Lower Walls routes are located on the lower face at the main Purinton Creek Cliff. Park across the road or next to the bridge and look for a small trail that leads from the road to the wall.

Climbing Season
