About Magee Crags:

This is an easily accessed butte of basalt with some good intermediate climbing. The rock is quite stable, and unique to the area, though some routes are dirty, and loose debris may be found on the ledges. It has a nice view of Lake Laberge, as well as the surrounding mountains. Please respect the area as it does lie within a private lease, access is granted, but use common sense.
Nearest town or city: Whitehorse
Directions: Head north on the Klondike Highway #2 off of Alaska Highway #1. About 19 KM from the highway intersection you will see a jeep trail through the ditch on your left (about 1.5 KM past Shallow Bay Road). Continue up the hill and veer left on a good trail. Follow this is and drop down and to the right, where you will seee the bluff ahead of you about 3 KM away. Continue to the clay flats, park and walk in. Use caution, the raod is very rough!
