DescriptionSunny all day except for the more northern areas that see sun in the afternoon. Fairly secluded. Great granite and seriously beautiful views down the canyon.
"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 well do our
best to answer."
From the first edition of Ryan Agar's guide book to the area: Yukon Climbing Guide.
Getting ThereFrom town take the Alaska Highway north to the Klondike Highway. After 9km or so you will see signs for Takhini Hotsprings. Take a left onto Takhini Hotsprings road and follow this almost to the end (close to Bean North Cafe). Take a left onto Takhini River road and follow this for another 7km or so. You should cross a small wooden bridge over Flat Creek, and then enter a marshy area. Often times this is really muddy, so unless you have a 4x4, you may want to park here (on the right). From here you can walk another 2.5km to the trailhead, which is near a pond and should have a sign that declares the land ownership. It's about a 10min walk from here. The trail will at one point join another trail, at which point you should turn right. Head up into the canyon.
