a 3800' wall that forms the northeastern face of Polar Bear Peak. As big a wall as can be found anywhere in the chugach. The first several hundred feet can be climbed by linking up vegetated ledges and such. After that, its a decently tough-looking lead up to the top, with plenty of wide spots to offer respite. I climbed about 600 or so feet of it in 2000, and it was overgrown 4th and lower 5th class.
The first recorded ascent was made in winter of 04 by John Kelley and partner. They said it was 5.10/WI6, M6. Not sure what route they took, but it was different than where I was climbing.
