Description Suggest change

The Arctic Circle is a remote area southeast of Queen Mountain's base which offers a good selection of problems from V-easy to V5. Unfortunately the rock quality is not on par with the other areas nearby but The Iceberg is an interesting boulder with it's unique crystals.

Highlights here include the Bounty Hunter Arete (V0+), Intrusion Face (V1), Survivalist (V2), Particle Accelerator (V3), Side Dish (V4) and Anti-Matter (V5 R).

Getting There Suggest change

From the parking circle hike east along the southern edge of some low hills aiming for a spot just south of some prominent white crags (The White Cliffs) at the base of Queen Mountain. As you get closer head for some dark boulders atop a hill. The approach takes 30-45 minutes.
