Ice Guide : Southcentral : Matanuska River : Caribou Creek : Double Take

Double Take

Rating: WI5
Length: 50 meters

Double Take is the more stunning line on the right and is substantially harder at a WI5. It also can be climbed in a single pitch with a 60 meter rope. The pure vertical curtain of Double Take marks the start and the crux of the route. One can use the rock wall on the right to help tackle this obstacle. It is possible to climb Spaced to gain access to the anchors on top of Double Take to set a toprope.


Anchor: A spruce tree at the right on top of the second step is available as an anchor.

Double Take requires a four mile approach. Not long after passing the shack on the right ridge, this climb becomes easily visible from the river. Double Take is marked by the free hanging curtain.
