Near Mendenhall Glacer. May 07.
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.
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.
