Description

West facing slabby multi-pitch limestone. CTFN asks recreationists to avoid sheep/goat habitat from May to June 15th, during lambing season. 

Getting There

Park your car at the parking lot on your right, 4km down the road to Atlin, near the boat launch. From here it is a 1hr hike to the base of the climbs following a route marked with flagging tape.

Cross the road and go up the first slope heading North-East. Once near the top of the slope, pay attention for the orange flagging which begins here. The trail follows relatively flat ground for the first part, but will eventually head up the slope to the right, and get very steep near the end. Keep looking for the orange flags which will lead you all the way to the bottom of the climbs.

GPS recommended for first time out. There is a .gpx file that can be viewed on your phone from the MountainProject app or downloaded onto your favourite navigation app. This will make your first time up much easier.

[Hide Comment] Please be aware of the sheep lambing/ goat kidding closure each spring April 1 to mid-June. White Mt is full of sheep, so avoid the area.
From Yukon.ca "In May and early June, pregnant ewes head for the steep cliffs of the lambing grounds. Ewes stay for a few days to have their lambs and then join together to form nursery groups. After three or four weeks, when all the ewes have lambed, the sheep move toward their summer range, following the line of snowmelt and newly sprouted green shoots back up to the alpine for the summer."
