Any ice formed around Anchorage? I'll be in town on business this week but will have a day, likely Thursday Nov 7, to climb. Just looking to get out for an easy day since I haven't gotten out this year. I'd like to toprope or follow some easy multipitch. I have a rack and rope but don't want to bring it unless I have to. Send me a PM!
hey Whyatt, Unseasonably warm temperatures have limited ice to the high alpine. Your only bet for ice around anchorage at the moment is Hookers on Ptarmigan Peak. that is still a three hour approach and is a WI6. I was up there last week. It is in. Might not be quite what you're after this early in the season, but it's all that is in.
Otherwise I would recommend the Alaska Rock Gym. :(
