Outdoor Climbing

There are a few areas that have been opened up for rock climbing and bouldering in and around Yellowknife. Please respect the climbing areas. Minimize your impact by keeping the crags clean and free of trash (includes Clif Bar wrappers).

The YKCC has an outdoor climbing mailing list at the Bouldering Gym and an outdoor climbing Facebook group. Find a mentor to bring you out. The YKCC also occasionally offers outdoor climbing courses. Check our website regularly for updates.

Above all, be safe! Protect your brain. Remember to wear a helmet! Other necessary equipment includes very long slings for anchors and bug spray.
