      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Available maps for Chugach AK.

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Not only new to this forum but new to the North West (kind of :-)

 

I am traveling to Alaska this weekend for another two week stay with friends in Girdwood. I plan to do as much climbing/mountaineering in the area as possible during my stay.

I have done some stuff in the Crow Pass area during my last summer visit but hope to do quite a bit more this time.

 

My question relates to mapping.

 

I already own the 'Anchorage & Vicinity - Road and Recreation Map' published by Todd Communications. This map works to a scale of 1" = 1mile. My question is, are there better, more detailed maps available for this area?

Here in the UK we use Ordinance Survey maps that are scaled as 1:25,000 and are very detailed. I'm hoping I can get hold of something similar for the Chugach Range around Girdwood.

 

Kindest Regards,

 

Matt
