Join Andrew, an ACMG-certified mountain guide, for this beginner friendly 2-day climbing course, finishing with a guided climb of Stawamus Chief in Squamish!
Jul, Aug, Sep
If you’re new to climbing and want to learn and practice your technique in a beautiful outdoor environment, then this program is for you! Plus, you will put everything you learn into action as you an impressive granite wall!
The Stawamus Chief is a giant granite dome that towers above the town of Squamish, conveniently located about an hour outside of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is a popular place for climbers due to the many incredible lines leading to its multiple summits. It is a great place to get a feel for outdoor climbing, and with my expert instruction, you will grow and develop the key climbing skills that will form the basis of your climbing for years to come.
On the first day of this 2-day program, I will instruct you in basic climbing skills and techniques, focusing on the in and outs of climbing and rope skills. The following day, we will put everything you learned into practice as I guide you toward the summit of the Stawamus Chief itself! While the climb will test you, there is no greater motivation than the sense of accomplishment you feel after a hard climb with a panoramic vista of the valley and town of Squamish below.
This is a great program for those with little to no climbing experience. All that’s necessary is a decent level of strength and fitness to complete the climb. I will provide plenty of guidance and instruction to make sure it’s a fun and rewarding 2 days!
Book now – not only will you learn the skills that will form the foundation of all your future climbing adventures, but you will also experience the thrill of pushing toward a challenging outdoor summit!

I love climbing, especially big granite alpine walls, towers and spires. However I love all types of climbing from bouldering to ice climbing and enjoy giving others the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors we have here in western Canada!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
