Description 

An area right along the highway that is known for its long slab climbs. Fun area if you can get down with the highway noise. Some of the longer single pitchers on the highway.

Getting There 

Mile 9.9 past the weigh station. Directly across from the gate that blocks access to the railroad on the other side of the highway. The gate isn't so red anymore so don't expect it to be a beacon like it used to be. Turn around and park well off the road in the grass to avoid hassles.

Another slab route on the main formation. Suffers from very odd bolting...I would suggest top roping after leading Limp Hangover with a bolt at top as a directional. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
