About Hatcher's Pass:

The reason Hatcher's Pass is a great climbing area is that rock slides and the geography of it creates great trad and can find many decent sized boulders and many granite faces for trad or high wall bouldering.
Nearest town or city: Palmer
Directions: Drive to the Hatcher"s Pass parking lot by the old mine. From here you can look for boulders from your car and faces but here is how to get to one face. hike out of the parking lot away from the mine.tun left at the small wooden bridge over a the stream. hike up the trail a short ways and look to your right a bit and you should see a rock face 20 feet high colored orange gray and black. This is a great rock face.
Latitude, Longitude: 61.63773, -150.22705
Access Issues: Most of the time it's raining up there so plan climbs on a sunny day. Wear hiking boots or waterproof approach shoes. I don't think the park rangers will give you any problems, but if they do head up the pass/valley(there are some great 50 ft faces up there.
