This area holds the majority of the rock climbing close to Anchorage. The rock is blasted cliff faces along the Seward Highway. It is a great place to go to after work or just for a few hours. It can be really pretty looking over the ocean, if you can push the busy highway aside.

All information of the Seward Highway was taken out of The Scar by Kristian Sieling.

Getting There 

Head south out of Anchorage, once you hit the Weigh Station reset your odometer.

Dino Who? 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- E4 6a  AK : Anchorage & South Central A... : ... : Dino Head
Near the left end of the cliff, locate the dramatically overhanging green-and-purple colored corner. Technical stemming, palming, counter-pressure and layback moves will get you up one of the finer routes on the highway. Very steep, and each move gets harder until the crux finale. Lots of cool moves packed into one short route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AK

Loose rock is the norm. I'm excited when a hold DOESN'T break during a climb.

A little video to give you a taste of the rock. I just can't believe it was an established route.
