I was wondering if there is anymore information on this area. Does anyone know if it is included in the alaska climbing guide? I will be spending the summer in Soldotna and the lack of climbing in the area, kills me. I can't wait to explore Skilak. If anyone who has already been involved in establishing this area would like some help, just let me know! Thanks.

There is no other information on Skilak. Ben Schmidt, who put up 7 Felonies, might have bolted other routes, but they are not posted. It is not in The Alaska Rock Climbing Guide. I would recommend a small boat to explore Skilak, as it is a very large lake. I would also recommend going to Anchor Point and bouldering. It is about 70 miles from Soldotna. It is a single tall glacial erratic boulder by a river.
You might also contact Ben via email, by clicking on his name in the Skilak section.
I hope this helps.
