Ice Guide : Southcentral : Chitistone River

Chitistone River

Chitistone River provides one of the most wild experiences for ice climbing in Alaska.  This style of climbing is more akin to an expedition than to the weekend outings available around Anchorage.  This area has seen plenty of activity as early as 1987 when a few parties visited these climbs and made numerous first ascents.  Roman Dial was instrumental in documenting this information. He wrote a Chitistone Canyon Guide in 1988 that provides history and experiences of climbing in this wild area of Alaska.
