Description

Paint Mountain is quite possibly the most beautiful place to climb in the Territory. Directly behind you while you climb is Kluane mountains. It's an added bonus that the climbing here tends to also be phenomenal. There is also a HUGE amount of potential for new routes to be set. Get that bolt gun out!
The rock is magnificent granite.

Getting There

Head to Haines Junction from Whitehorse. 5km before arriving in Haines Junction, turn right onto Pine Lake Subdivision Road (or something like that...). Go along this road to the very end, which is a little cul-de-sac sort of thing with little trailer homes. Park here somewhere, but please don't block anyone's driveway.
