About Hillside Pillars ICE:

There are three climbs in this group on Hatcher Pass Road about 500 to 600 feet above the road on the right before you reach the Motherlode Lodge and Restaurant. Keep an eye on avalanche conditions, this side loads up and slides a lot in the late winter.
Nearest town or city: Hatcher Pass
Directions: Drive about two and a half miles past the Little Susitna Bridge on Hatcher Pass Road and park at a large flat area off of the road. The snow berm may make this difficult in the winter. Across the river is an obvious gully leading up the hill to the routes.
