About Portage Valley Rock:

When the weather is good, you can find some beautiful, longer routes on good rock in the Portage area. Middle Glacier Canyon has sharp, sometimes loose rock, and gets good sunshine in the morning. Most of the routes are at least two pitches long. The Byron Glacier area has very slick (glacial polished) rock, usually quite solid, and most routes tend to be a rope length long. Nice climbing away from the crowds less than an hour from Anchorage.
Nearest town or city: Girdwood
Directions: To get to the Portage areas, drive 36 miles south of the Potter Marsh weigh station and turn left on Portage Glacier Road. Continue down this road and the areas will be on your right as you travel towards the Visitor Center.
