An excellent, yet orphaned, granite glacial erratic boulder on the Kenai Peninsula, north west of Homer.

Getting There 

The Anchor Point Boulder is approximately 16 miles north of Homer, or 200 miles away from Anchorage on the Sterling Highway. Travel to Anchor Point on the Sterling Highway, and turn left(if coming from Anchorage), or right(if coming from Homer), on North Fork Road and park on the right side of the guard rail pull-off of the North Fork River. Walk right, and downhill(and down river...south) for a few(or 20 minutes in the summer, due to Alders) along the river itself, towards the two wood/log houses, until you see a tundra coated(the down climb backside) of the Anchor Point boulder. The climbing is on the southeast and southwest faces. Cross the river and enjoy.

Please see shitflyclimbing.com/topos/shit... for entertainingly descriptive explanations of all routes on the boulder.

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...

I would not advise anyone try to access the boulder by the "short cut". Take it from a guy who was kindly reminded that bullets may fly if people keep trespassing.

I looked into the land ownership and It seems like the boulder is on private property. Maybe I talk with the owner of the land should be in order so no one gets hurt trying to climb a rock.

Access is sensitive. DO NOT circumvent the river crossing to make access easier. The owner has released his dogs to shake up people who walk bordering their property next to the river. Just bushwack and wade across.
