Description 

Juneau holds several small crags along the road system with a variety of rock and styles of climbing. Everything from bouldering, to sport climbing - even a few trad lines exist. Approaches can be a bit tricky, the rock can be a bit dirty, but the climbs are of fine quality and the locations are almost always incredible. Bring a brush and some bug repellent. For most of the climbs you need no more than ten draws and a 60m rope. Route descriptions will let you know of anything else that may be helpful.

Getting There 

Juneau is accessible only by boat or plane. While it is generally not a climbing destination, if you are visiting it can't hurt to bring along your shoes and a rope. If you are going to be here for the summer, you may want to bring along your rack; the Juneau Ice Field has several impressive granite spires that make for excellent alpine climbs.

A fantastic voyage up splitter granite cracks in an amazing setting. Preferred Approach: Take a helicopter. There's a great landing platform right at the base of the curtain which also makes for a great camp location.Long Approach: Take the Mendenhall Glacier Trail to an overlook well past the toe of the glacier. From here the trail heads up the mountainside and away from the glacier. Find a weakness in the cliffband and descend loose gully to the ice.
