Ice Guide : Southcentral : Valdez : Tsina Bridge Pillar

Tsina Bridge Pillar

Rating: WI4
Length in Meters: 20
Length in Pitches: 1


Tsina Bridge pillar offers excellent top rope options and is a small amphitheater of ice with virtually no approach.

Approach: Park at the obvious pull out at the Tsina bridge. Gear up at the car and cross the bridge from the parking lot go left to rappel off the alders onto the pillar proper. The alder rappel provides a great top rope opportunity for the pillar. The other option is to go right and under the bridge to rappel off a two bolt anchor with chains.

Descent: Alder or bolted anchor

Objective Hazards : If you're down there after a fresh snow be aware that the plow truck will knock a small avalanche of snow off the bridge down onto you.
