Gentle sun, thin wispy trees, short & fun climbs, crumbly basalt rock.

Perfect place to hang out after work or on a week-end. Maybe bring a BBQ?

Getting There From Whitehorse 

Crag Ex is about 31km away from Whitehorse towards Dawson.
1) Take the Alaska Highway Northbound.
2) Take a right turn towards Dawson, following the Klondike Highway (The Cutoff)
3) Exactly 19.3km after the cutoff, you will see a dirt drive on the left of the highway.
4a) Go up a tiny hill (50m) and park there, there is room for 2-3 cars. Follow the quad path for a bit, and take the first distinct walking trail towards your right. This trail will lead you to the nice south-facing Crag which you saw from the highway!
4b) Alternatively, you can continue in your car on the dirt road past the tiny parking and take the first right, this road can be a bit bumpy but will take you around to a nice parking area just below the crag.

Damn! The first bolt looks kind of high, and it kind of is. You'll be going up a steep wall, leaning to the right most of the time on slopers that barely qualify as holds.If you're going for the view from the top, you should turn back. Ain't worth the effort especially given that the top is only 15m high....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
