From the top of 'Welcome to the Jungle', grovel right on a small grassy ledge to a 2 bolt belay anchor under a striking prow of rock. Climb side pulls and edges to a series of thin face moves(5.10d). Dance up lower angle rock to the final prow of flint-hard stone(5.10c). A spectacular climb with great exposure. Also, a beautiful view of the north face of Polar Bear Peak. *Kiliak Wall is an alpine area with loose rock and other objective hazards. It is suggested to wear a helmet, and be aware of other climbers above and below you at all times.

Descent Options:

Rappel with 60 meter rope.
