Description 

The Yukon Territory is one of Canada's three territories in the north. Similar to provinces, the territories are their own political jurisdictions.

From a climbing perspective, the Yukon is most famously the home of Mt. Logan, the highest peak in Canada.

"If you are developing a new crag, do some homework. Large parts of
land fall under First Nations Land Claims agreements and may be
subject to special regulations or considerations. Using land for
recreational purposes is allowed under most Land Claims agreements,
however modifications to the land such as bolting and cutting trails
is usually controlled. Failure to comply with Land Claims agreements
could lead to closure of the crag. If you have any questions about a
particular area or crag let us know at climbyukon.net and we’ll do our
best to answer."
From the first edition of Ryan Agar's guide book to the area: Yukon Climbing Guide.

Yellow Brick Road 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a PG13  North America : Canada : ... : Cranberry Meadows
A balancey start leads you up the initial slab. Cut hard left and work your way up fun broken blocks. Undercling a bulge and work right to use a rail above and mantle to the ledge. Get past the crux using a high right foot and search for the hidden right hand hold. Keep moving right and finish up on a nice ledge for clipping the anchors. Rappel and repeat. PS if preparing this route for top rope make sure to use directionals for the second to prevent a pendulum....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
