Description 

This is a fun little area that is the closest sport crag to Valdez. There are some recent routes that have sprouted this summer (2011). A big thanks to those that have helped develop the crag.

Getting There 

On your way out of town, take a left at the blinking light (Airport Road). Keep going past the airport, and park in the pullout at the campground entrance. Walk down the road for about 10 yards, and the trail will be on your left.

If you have fingers of steal this is the route for you. Climb onto the left trending ramp with a good side pull to clip the first bolt 8 feet off the ground.
