Description 

The Sky Pilot Area is made up of three crags. Upper Sky Pilot, Sky Pilot Roadcut and Sky Pilot. Upper Sky Pilot has some fun slab and great views. Everything else here gets a bomb due to falling down rock, old rusty bolts, poor protection, and anything else you don’t want to find at a climbing area. All this located next to one of the most dangers roads in America. Enjoy.

Getting There 

Sky Pilot Area is located 5.2- 5.3 miles from the wight station at mile marker 109.4- 109.5. Park in front of Sky Pilot to climb there or park on the anchorage side of Sky Pilot Roadcut to climb at the other two walls.
