BETA PHOTO: View of black lakes from mountain across the road


This is the small crag just across the road from the black lakes on the Klondike highway. There are several quality bolted climbes here as well as multiple trad lines.

Getting There 

Take the Klondike highway north out of town. The road will pass betwean two lakes. These are the black lakes. Park just after the second lake and hike up the hill directly across the road to the obvious rock face. This will put you at the base of the majority of the sport routes
