Description 

The bluffs along Kachemak Bay on your way outside of town are a great ice climbing destination during the darkest time of the year, mid December to mid January. All of the climbs are mostly south facing and if there is any sun whatsoever they start to melt quickly. Act fast to enjoy these easy to access climbs and you'll be rewarded with a very unusual experience-climbing ice at sea level, on a beach!

Getting There 

Most of the climbs are accessed from Saltwater Drive. Park at the end and walk along the road back towards the highway, looking right for a path through the woods to a rappel point.

Close to Home WI3  AK : Anchorage & South Central I... : Homer
Easy access, close to the road. Fun climb, many variations, easy to top rope if you want. Climb the first mini curtain to a bunch of alders, belay here if you have a hesitant second, other wise solo. Walk to the base of the large curtain. Climb the steepening ice to a few body lengths of WI3. Climb over the bulge to a small landing. Climb through the last column (8 10 feet) to fixed trees at the top. Keep in mind this climb gets a lot of sun....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
