Day 47 Scale the Stawamus Chief

Day 47 Scale the Stawamus Chief

Scale the Stawamus Chief

Catching sight of the Stawamus Chief lording over

Highway 99 is enough to stop your breath in your

chest- so imagine the view from the top.

 

These massive granite cliffs offer hundreds of

world-class rock-climbing routs.

 

Aided by a guide, newer climbers can find their feet

on the easier routes, while experienced climbers

tackle complex cracks in the Grand Wall’s sheer

rock face.”

 

Tthe Grand Wall as a rock climb is completely

unparalleled,” days Kevin McLane, author of  The

climbers Guide to Squamish (Elaho Press, 2005)

Hiking is a less daring-though still strenuous-way

to see the three summits, which rise more than

600.650 and 700 metres in succession.

 

Feast on the panorama of Howe Sound and the

Squamish Valle, and watch soaring peregrine falcons.

 

Stawamus Chief Provincial Park is north of Vancouver

on Hwy 99, just outside Squamish.
