Type of Trip
In the west coast of Canada, Squamish is a true paradise for rock climbers. Its granite walls attract rock climbers of all levels during the warmer months, when the area is not covered in snow.
Squamish is located along the Vancouver-Whistler corridor, approximately half way between the vibrant city and the renown ski resort. You will find in the area an immense variety of first class single-pitch and multi-pitch routes.
The main attraction is The Chief. It is a massive granite monolith, 700 meters high. And it is surrounded by many rock bluffs, providing a great offer of slabs and crack climbs.
We can go rock climbing in the area for one or more days. This program is open to all levels, and I can adapt it to your level, time available, and wishes. So let me know if you wish to improve any particular climbing skills or if you are just looking for a fun day on the rocks. In any case, we will have an amazing day or days.
Some of my favourite routes are in:
– The Chief (of course!)
– The Squaw
– The Grand Wall
– The Apron
– Murrin Park
– The Smoke Bluffs
– The Malamute
– Mount Habrich
Make sure to send me a request if you want to come rock climbing in the Squamish area! I know these walls very well and you can be sure we will have a fantastic time! And for more rock climbing options, check out this rock climbing program in the Canadian Rockies.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
Weather: the weather is mild during these months, but it can change quickly, so make sure you are dressed for all variations and temperatures. And don't forget a cap, sunglasses, sunscreen and water.
