Alaska's only real concentration of sport climbing. The climbing is on a peculiar igneous formation, that is formed into large overhanging stacked pillars. The most common features are cracks, slopers, edges, pinches and random pockets. The Wookie Wall gets sun until late in the day and is a great early winter/early spring destination, as it site in the sun, for the majority of the day. In the warmer months, the best time to climb at Wookie is the morning or evening, as it is a solar collection furnace during the day, reducing the friction of the rock greatly. Wookie consists of a nice collection of 75-100 boulder problems on the hillside below the wall, and has over 60 sport and trad routes on the cliff line. Camping is available, just off the side of the road, for free on the right side of the Glenn Highway going east, just past Weiner Lake. The land owners on Weiner Lake graciously allow campers on their lake, which is mostly private property. The camping is confined to the above mentioned area. Please continue to treat this with respect, to maintain as cohesive relationship with the land-owners as possible.
Take the Glenn Highway east toward Glen Allen after leaving Palmer. It is located approximately 90 minutes from Anchorage. The climbing is located at mile 88 along the Glenn. Park at the 2nd pull-off on the right side of the road, just past Weiner Lake. Look for a faint trail heading up to the cliff. The boulders are off of this trail,east and west before the scree/talus field below the wall.. Continue up the north/south trail to reach the cliff band.
