More info about Mountain Climbing in Garibaldi Provincial Park:

Sitting just 80 kilometers north of Vancouver, Garibaldi Provincial Park is a veritable playground for mountain climbing enthusiasts. Outside of climbing its namesake peak, Castle Towers Mountain (2,676 meters) and Mamquam Mountain (2,588 meters) are two great climbing destinations. The former boasts three different summits to climb and offers some of the best views available in the park. The latter is a more challenging climb that involves traversing the Mamquam Icefield as well as climbing up rock to reach the summit. Adventurous moutnaineers looking for an appropriate challenge will find one in Wedge Mountain (2,895 meters), which sits at the northern end of the park. The peak requires a lot of physical effort as well as some glaciers and ice climbing. It’s a good way to prepare for more advanced climbs and offers more spectacular views
