A spectacular view from Panorama Point.

Description 

This area encompasses the Valdez and Thompson Pass rock climbing areas. The rock tends to be a little chossy, but the scenery is unbeatable. The majority of the climbing is in the Thompson Pass area, but there is a little to be found in Valdez itself. If you are coming to town bring your gear for a great day out on the rocks.

Getting There 

From Anchorage take highway 1 to Glennallen then take highway 4 to Valdez.

Blueberry Crack 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  AK : Anchorage & South Central A... : ... : Blueberry Block
The BEST climb in the Valdez area. Well, pretty much the only crack climb at least. Climb the angling hand crack with good jams. Use face holds out left to squeeze into the chimney. From the ledge traverse out left on face holds for a good pumpy finish. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
