Description 

Juneau holds several small crags along the road system with a variety of rock and styles of climbing. Everything from bouldering, to sport climbing - even a few trad lines exist. Approaches can be a bit tricky, the rock can be a bit dirty, but the climbs are of fine quality and the locations are almost always incredible. Bring a brush and some bug repellent. For most of the climbs you need no more than ten draws and a 60m rope. Route descriptions will let you know of anything else that may be helpful.

Getting There 

Juneau is accessible only by boat or plane. While it is generally not a climbing destination, if you are visiting it can't hurt to bring along your shoes and a rope. If you are going to be here for the summer, you may want to bring along your rack; the Juneau Ice Field has several impressive granite spires that make for excellent alpine climbs.

Leave crampons, ice axes and boots on snow near the bergschrund. Scout the schrund and MARK YOUR DESCENT SPOT WELL - you need to be able to see your mark from hundreds of feet up while you're trying to figure out your line on the descent - Leave something bright/large a couple of hundred feet out from the rock in line with your gear and exit point onto the snow so you can see it from far above.Follow triangular snow patch on left side of 4th tower up to chossy gully, or solo up easy gold slab o...[more]   Browse More Classics in AK
