Description 

As this is in a canyon, it receives sun in the morning and then later in the afternoon is shaded and can get pretty cold (wind funneling, etc.)
Same rock as the rest of Paint Mountain: granite

Getting There 

Several options of getting here. From the road to Haines Junction, you can see the canyon. It is just right of the giant morraine, and left of Swiss Wall.
You can access the canyon from Swiss Wall, by heading down and following along the bottom of the wall. Otherwise, you can take the path-of-least-resistance starting from the trail at the bottom.
It is literally a canyon, with some impressive, and as of yet unclimbed routes on the face of the mountain. The routes that are set-up are on the canyon wall (hiker's right)

Climbing Season

For the Canada area.

The crux is probably between the two bulge/overhangs. Protection can be tricky, so be careful. Long and pumpy route, with some good rests if you are good at stemming and know where to look ;)...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
