Ice Guide : Southeast : Haines : Chilkat River : Upper Chilkat River : Tohitkah Mountain

Tohitka Mountain

The routes on Tohitka Mountain are less prominent than the massive Blue Cherry across the valley.  But, be sure to check them out if you are in the neighborhood.  

Access is similar to Klutshah Mountain.  After crossing the Kelsall, follow logging trails approximately two miles back to the Upper Chilkat River valley. Continue on the trails until the main scooter trail finishes with a 300 yard downhill through old growth. One will pop out at a slough and travel an additional three miles on trails to a (hopeful) river crossing at or near a seasonal lodge with guest cabins. This is a good marker that you are in the right area. Avoid a brush battle and head several hundred yards up valley past the guest lodge advancing toward the mountain's slope. 

Alert: The access to the climbing in this area may exist through private property. Climb at your own risk and respect the land owners and property in this area.
