Skagway is a town located at the Northern terminus of the Lynne Canal. Skagway was originally settled as the gateway to the Chilkoot and White Pass trails during the Klondike gold rush in 1898. Skagway saw a second boom during World War II as a major military town in defending against US Invasion.
Today Skagway is a tourist town in the summer and pretty much a ghost town in the winter (although it looks like there would be serious potential for ice climbing on the Klondike highway north of town during the colder months). Skagway has massive potential for new routes. Development is happening all along the Klondike Highway, near the town site of Dyea, and at Yakatania Point. There is potential for hundreds of alpine routes in the mountains outside of town. The rock, which can be chossy, is granite. There are several quality routes outside of town awaiting a first ascent to those willing to look for it.

Getting There 

Take a ferry from Juneau, drive in on the Klondike Highway from Whitehorse Canada, or fly in to the Skagway Airport.
