Description 

The Yukon Territory is one of Canada's three territories in the north. Similar to provinces, the territories are their own political jurisdictions.

From a climbing perspective, the Yukon is most famously the home of Mt. Logan, the highest peak in Canada.

"If you are developing a new crag, do some homework. Large parts of
land fall under First Nations Land Claims agreements and may be
subject to special regulations or considerations. Using land for
recreational purposes is allowed under most Land Claims agreements,
however modifications to the land such as bolting and cutting trails
is usually controlled. Failure to comply with Land Claims agreements
could lead to closure of the crag. If you have any questions about a
particular area or crag let us know at climbyukon.net and we’ll do our
best to answer."
From the first edition of Ryan Agar's guide book to the area: Yukon Climbing Guide.

Crucifx 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  North America : Canada : ... : Grand Central Station
Head up the slippery 5.9 climbing, involving lay-backs and ledges. Three quarters of the way up you reach the right facing side pull. Head up this to obtain the 5.11a climbing. Clip two bolts and head right onto some crimps. The crux is going from here up to the good ledge at the top. Left foot on the previously good flake for your hand, push up to reach a really terrible hold for your left hand, push up higher, then bump up to the good ledge with your left hand. Mantle up!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
