Ice Guide : Southcentral : Valdez : 19 Mile Wall

19 Mile Wall

The 19-Mile Wall is located 100 meters above and on the left (west) side of the highway about a half mile past Sheep Creek Canyon when driving towards Glennallen. Home to a handful of moderate to difficult routes, this area is a great location for those looking to climb in the sun. Another positive about this location is that it often has decent winter temps even when the town of Valdez is well above freezing. Parking is limited and drivers should always be mindful of DOT plow trucks.
