Comments: Climbed the route a couple of weeks ago in late October, middle of week. We got to Pine Creek parking lot at about 6:15 and we were just beat to the base of the climb. The party in front of us rapped after the second pitch so we had no one ahead the rest of the day. One group below us that we rapped by later on. Pretty nice day. We were extremely careful rapping the route and had no problems. It did take an hour and 45 minutes to rap and from what I've heard that's about average or even a ... more >>

Comments: Thank you Levi for putting up some information. Just a couple of comments:
Bill's last name is spelled McKenna. He's been extremely prolific throughout Alaska both roadside as well as the greater mountain ranges of this state as well as the lower 48 and South America. We're lucky to have him in our small community.

The Woz may rock during the warmer months but it truly shines in the winter. Ice climbing there can keep one satisfied for trips up to a week or more. Bill's climbed most of the... more >>

Comments: It looks like the guy is trying to put his third piece of pro in where he stands at about 40-50 feet off the deck. You do many .10d sport climbs like that?

Comments: There's easier access by pulling into a dirt drive off the Sterling Highway. I think it's like the first drive (driving south) on the left just past the Thanks for Visiting Anchor Point sign. There's a bunch of no trespassing signs that are easily ignored. Just walk downhill and you're at the boulder. Hooray...

Comments: How likely is it to roll into town solo (early august) and stumble upon a climbing partner? Camping info, etc would be appreciated. Thanks!

Comments: Thanks, I'll start there and post what I find out. I'm not sure how bad it is getting to and from the airport around 9am but my buddy seems to be VERY hesitant to go near it.

Comments: Any advice on transport from airport to RR? Flying in but need a ride out to meet up with partner. Taxis, buses, etc? My buddy can pick me up somewhere close by but doesn't want to drive to the airport during the hours I'll be arriving.

Comments: I notice on their website that Canyon Vista Campground is open May 16-October but many people comment on the great winter climbing here. Am I right to assume that the campground is accessible during their off-season? I'll be traveling through that area around late April and wanted to check out the pit for a day but didn't want to waste my time if it is going to be gated up or something. Thanks.
