Professional mountain guides with world expedition experience will lead you on an exciting climbing and zip lining adventures in the mountains of the White Pass. 

There are great climbs for all abilities and no matter what your experience level, you will be challenged!

Take a short, narrated drive through historic downtown Skagway and up the Klondike Highway where you will hike to the base of majestic rock cliffs recently smoothed by retreating glaciers.

After receiving your equipment and safety orientation, you will rope up and start climbing the clean granite.

No experience is necessary, choose from more than a dozen routes ranging from easy to very challenging.  Each climb ends with a stunning aerial view of the Skagway River, The White Pass & Yukon Route Railway, and the surrounding wilderness.  You will have the chance to climb routes matched to your ability level and then try a thrilling 70-foot rappel.

Next up is a series of five exhilarating zip lines through the lush Alaska forest canopy. Our double cable system has a hands-free guide-controlled braking system which allows you to focus on having fun and not on braking yourself!  As you zip from platform to platform, fellow participants cheer you on.

This combination adventure gives you the excitement and thrill of two activities!
