The Ripple, WI3
The Eklutna Canyon drainage is open to climbing but is on private property belonging to Ekultna Incorporated. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is probably one of the most popular climbs in Alaska. This is an nice WI3 climb that is in every year.


Location 

Descend into the canyon, and then hike for forty five minutes and this climb will be on your right. You can't miss it!


Protection 

Bring some screws and a 70m rope if you have one. If not it will be a two pitch climb. A three bolt anchor exist at the top of this climb on the left. Rappel to the ledge and then make a second rappell of the tree.

This climb is actually called "Ripple", not "The Ripple". It is named after a cheap wine, like most of the climbs in this canyon.
