Here's another new line on Heritage Point in the Chugach done last week. The Wild Dog Vapor Lock is about 3,500' and goes at V M6 WI4. It took us around 48 hours roundtrip from a camp at the base.

Now there's some real climbing, assuming no chipping was involved.
Where is Heritage Point in the Chugach? Is it in this picture?

Is that near Heritage falls in Eagle River?

Really love seeing the great new routes you have been putting up. Solid stuff!

Bruce, we bivied once after the 10th pitch.

Reilly, can't see it in that photo but you can see Peril Peak just left of center in the back.

Climbski2, yeah Heritage point is a subpeak on the ridge to Polar Bear Peak in the Eagle River drainage just past Heritage Falls.
