Summary

A huge amount of world-class climbing of all types easily accessible from the town of Squamish.

Description

Squamish has easily accessible world-class climbing of all types -- from run-out slab on the Apron, to single-pitch trad climbing with 5 minute approaches 5 minutes from town at Smoke Bluffs, to hard big-wall climbing on the Grand Wall, to all day expeditions up "The Chief", to sport of all types in "Cheakamus Canyon", to bouldering in the massive fields at the base.

As of summer 2015, Squamish Select by Marc Bourdon seems to be the most commonly used guidebook.

Access issues

There are occasional crags that are on private land (and closed) -- but generally climbing is well accepted and welcomed at the various crags and areas around Squamish.

Approach

Vary from crag to crag; but often surprisingly short and easy for the amount and quality of climbing on offer.

Where to stay

Lots of choices in the town of Squamish and around -- from fancy hotels through hostels, from nice provincial camp grounds through dirt-bagging in Cheakamus canyon.
