Add To Plan

Take your visit to the Klondike to new heights during this exciting climbing adventure on the smooth granite walls of the White Pass.

Depart the pier for the brief drive through historic downtown Skagway, then up the Klondike Highway. From the highway, you will take a brief hike on a nature trail to the base of majestic rock cliffs recently smoothed by retreating glaciers. Upon arrival, you will don your rock-climbing shoes, helmets and harnesses. After receiving your safety instructions and a climbing introduction from the guides, you will rope up and begin climbing the clean granite.

There are more than a dozen routes from which to choose. Some climbs are very easy, and others offer more challenges. Each ends with a stunning aerial view of the Skagway River, White Pass Yukon Route Railway and the surrounding wilderness. You will have an opportunity to climb many of the routes, and try rappelling down the high cliffs.

Throughout the tour, your guides will impart their knowledge and skill in all aspects of climbing. Many of them have guided on Denali and around the world, and will also share stories of their mountain adventures. Your safety is their primary concern at all times. No experience is necessary to participate on this tour, which is ideally suited for those looking for a first climbing experience or for experienced climbers looking for a challenge. Rock-climbing shoes, a helmet, a harness and a snack will be provided.

Following your tour, you will re-board your van for the return drive to the pier.

Please note: This tour involves a brief hike over uneven and sometimes steep terrain. Guests weighing more than 300 pounds will not be permitted on this tour. Dress warmly in flexible clothing.
