Be respectful of private property MORE INFO >>>


The Ninilchik & Deep Creek climbs along the beach are a great place to spend the day climbing. There are dozens of climbs along a few miles of beach ranging from low angle fun, steep, fat, thin, overhung, up to 2 pitches. Be prepared to fashion your own anchor up top.

The cliffs face west so expect early morning cool shade and sun in the afternoon. Because of the salt water make sure to give your metal gear a good rinse or wipe down to help keep the rust at bay.

BEWARE of the tides & check the tide schedule. The tide comes up to the base of many climbs and whether you drive or downclimb you don't want to get trapped.

NOTE: I will be adding climbs to this area soon and if someone knows that a specific climb has a name let me know otherwise...

Getting There 

Ninilchik and Deep Creek both have beach access roads.

Ninilchik: From Sterling Hwy take the Beach Access road and park at the beach. Walk and/or drive south to the climbs. If approaching from the cliffs above there are a few options and will update later with the beta. Be respectful of private property and rap or down climb from above.

Deep Creek: From Sterling Hwy take Deep Creek Way to the beach and head south. If approaching from the cliffs above be respectful of private property and rap or down climb from above.
