Ice Guide : Southcentral : Valdez : Wortmanns Creek : Captain Insano

Captain Insano

Rating: M5 WI5
Length in Meters: 80
Length in Pitches: 2

Overview: Climb up, around, and through vertical pillars to the last good belay cave at the bottom of the final pillar. Climb the pillar then transition/swim through the two alders to the loose, mossy ramp leading to the hanger curtain up and right. Bring a spectre for protecting the traverse and a #2 for a nice crack above the curtain.

Approach: On the bluff north of the creek about 2.5 miles from 18 mile/DOT lot. Look for the climb with the big hanging curtain to the top right. Just left of "Hartless"

Descent: There is a pecker and piton rap anchor off the top of the curtain, but I would recommend v-threading

First Ascent: Galen Vansant, Ryan Sims, Sam Volk February 2018

Objective Hazards : Loose rock on traverse
