Description 

The Valdez Glacier Rock Quarry is as the name suggests is the site of a blasted quarry wall and gravel pit. There are a few mid to low quality rock and mixed routes located here. Any fixed gear here should not be trusted due to the age and lack of SS steal. There setting is much more spectacular than the rock yet there is no telling what the next charge may reveal. This is an active gravel pit so be respectful of operations.

Getting There 

Turn off the Richardson Highway on to Airport road and drive till you arrive at Valdez Glacier Lake. The wall is located on your left.
