Hi all!
I'm in town for a couple of weeks between outdoor contracts, and looking for partners. Would love to head to Hatcher Pass or elsewhere if we have transportation. I'm limited on gear due to traveling light, but if you have a rack I'm more than happy to belay. Trad/sport. Very flexible on available days from now until 6/24.

Hello Marissa,

The gate to Hatchers(archangel) opens in about 4-5 days( you can still get there, just a casual 3-5 mile hike in). You are best off looking for partners at the ARG, in Anchorage. Don't let anyone talk you into climbing on the Seward Highway. I am the site admin for the state, so if you have any question, please direct them to me or Dommelheimer, the other admin for AK. Hatcher is awesome, for routes of all kind and bouldering and IS alpine, so keep that in mind.

Cheers,

Jared

So both the Independence gate and Archangel are open?? As they open at the same time. Thanks for the update. Typically it's around the 15th, give or take. Last year it was the 12th, as we started the second year of filming the Alaska Bouldering Film "Falling Forward" that day, which was a few days early, because someone chopped the lock and the grader crew was none to pleased that people were on the road. In fact, a few weeks ago, I hiked in to climb, with the gate locked, come to find out some jack-ass with a white Toyota truck and license plate "CLMBON" had removed the lock and was driving up the road...so, whether the gate is OPEN or just a result of that, I don't know. Might want to confirm that with the Park Service before proceeding.

Update: Archangel is open, but Independence gate does not open until the 21st.
