Description

The Star Chek is a majestic multi-pitch climbing route located between Squamish and Whistler. It rises up right behind the raging Cheakamus River, so the views while you climb are absolutely breathtaking!

You will climb this 3-pitch route together with a professional guide from our team, in a half-day adventure lasting around 4-5 hours. Each pitch becomes gradually more difficult, but the overall difficulty is not too challenging. Previous experience in single-pitch climbing is desirable, but the Star Chek multi-pitch is probably one of the best options around Squamish and Whistler to get into multi-pitch climbing.

We will start the day at 8.15 AM, meeting at our office in Whistler, where you’ll meet your guide, get the climbing equipment, and from there we’ll drive to the climbing area. If you are coming from Squamish, the meeting point will be the Squamish Adventure Centre.

Once there, you’ll discover one of the most classic and scenic routes in the Squamish area. The granite wall rises up right from the side of the Cheakamus River, which is born in Garibaldi Provincial Park and runs through the Cheakamus Canyon before joining the Squamish River.
