Hello,
I'm staying in Anchorage for the summer and would like to get out and climb! I have a rack, rope, and ice gear. Bouldering around Anchorage would be cool if you have a pad, or know of some clean landings.

Hatcher Pass is awesome, I plan to spend a fair amount of time there. I'd also like to check out the Matanuska Glacier ice climbing (for the novelty), perhaps some Seward highway survival climbing.

Get in touch if you'd like to climb, I'll be in town for a while!

Hey Tom,

I am pretty new to Anchorage and have been looking for people to climb with. These days my schedule is not great, but I can be flexible. I am an intermediate climber, I climb sport--lead in the mid 5.10 range. It sounds like you may be more into trad if you are focused on Hatcher Pass. Let me know if you're still in the market for a partner, and maybe we can make something work.

Hey tom I get out when I can. Wiener Lake (hard sport) or Hatcher is my normal routine. Getting out this weekend to one of those, if you want to go, message me. clint helander

Wes and Clint, thanks for the responses! PMs to follow.

I'm down for any type of climbing, sport is just fine by me. Wiener Lake looks burly, but I'd love to check it out.

This past week was mainly spent at Hatcher and the Matanuska Glacier (sweet!). I have fallen in love with Hatcher Pass, but would still like to check out the other southcentral crags.

Thanks again guys, it's been tough finding partners!

Right on, I'm glad to see this partner search gaining steam. I'll have an idea of my weekend availability probably mid-day Friday.

Thanks!

If you can make it down to Valdez in the next few weeks I should be able to give you a catch. I'm on the injury bench but may have time off of work for some bulay action if you can swing the road trip. 907-351-6878
Good luck

Nick, awesome! I haven't visited Valdez in the summer, that sounds quite appealing. I'll try to arrange a trip in the next few weeks. tom303
