Prindle Main Wall and satellite buttresses as seen...
The dominating feature within the Mt Prindle climbing area, the Main Wall is nearly 1,000' tall at it's apex and equally wide at it's base. Rock quality runs the gamut from good to bad to gravel and vegetation. Lichen is ever-present, and a pair of sunglasses are an essential part of the rack to keep the flying bits out of your eyes. A wide variety of routes exist on the Main Wall, from the "popular" Ghirardelli on the left end to some big-wall style aid routes on it's right side.

Belay at a large grassy ledge. 5.8P6) Move out left on the grassy ledge to the clean and enjoyable hand-crack in a tight right-facing corner. Pul...[more] Browse More Classics in Alaska
