Description:

This route is in the bend of Thunderbird Creek just upstream from where it joins with the Eklutna River. It is often used as an easy exit from the canyon to reach the hiker's trail above it.

2 out of 5 stars Good for beginners

Actually there are a couple, low-angle ice flows back here. Best way to find them the first time is to hike from the parking lot back to Thunderbird Falls, then backtrack downriver until you see the climbs on the left. They may be covered with snow. Legitimate WI1, these are very easy. If you are at all comfortable on ice you would not consider protecting them, but I think they're very good for beginning leaders to get their heads straight. They were good for me in that regard.
