These large igneous boulders appear to be composed of Chert. They are near frictionless and very blocky. Expect slick and sharp featured rock. Small edges, pinches slopers and gastons are the prominent features. Chickaloon has virtually no approach and can be climbed from early spring to late November.

Getting There 

From Anchorage take the Glenn Highway and turn towards Palmer, at the Parks/Glenn Junction. Continue until you reach Mile Marker 74. Directly after a left hand bend, by the river, is a pull-off with small graffitied boulders. Park here and head northwest across the road. There are four main boulders, encompassing the majority of the problems at Chickaloon, these are the first four visible boulders, crossing the highway.
