Ice Guide : Southcentral : Kenai Peninsula : Seward


Seward lies approximately 2.5 hours south of Anchorage on the Seward Highway. This tiny community is a busy summertime port for the numerous cruise ships passing through. In the winter, the town becomes quiet and most shops are closed waiting the return of the summer visitors. If you are venturing down in the off season, be sure to check the recent conditions. Ice climbing in Seward can come and go just about as quick as the summer tourists.

The approaches for the ice climbing in Seward varies from roadside to back country. The accessible Slime Line is a great warm up for the other ice climbing in the area like Victor Creek. But, plenty of back country climbs are in the Seward area that are worth the investment of the approach.
