Description:

Short hike to the Glacier, many different climbs ranging in difficulty. I did a variety of climbs during the day - I have not done ice climbing before, so I did not try too advanced routes. Getting there.. Head north from Anchorage about two hours on the Glenn Highway to mile 102 and the entrance to the Glacier Park Resort. Head down the road, cross the Matanuska River and stop at the visitor center. A day fee is required to enter the resort to climb.

5 out of 5 stars First Glacier Climb

Many routes to choose from - the final one, was a straight-up climb until about 45 feet, then there was a small bulge that you needed to climb up and over.
