Mountaineering

So you've hiked all the trails and routes from beginner to challenging and now you are looking for that next big challenge. Ever tried mountaineering? The Whistler area has some of the best, classic alpine routes in the area. Some mountain summits are attained with pure alpine rock climbing and others involve a mix of glacier travel, snow and ice climbing.

Local guides and courses from beginner to advanced are available to the thrill-seeking mountain adventurer. Popular climbs are Wedge Mountain at 2,904 metres, Mt. Matier at 2,770 metres and Blackcomb Peak at 2,346 metres.

Rock Climbing

In the summer, the Whistler area has some of the best rock climbing in the world - most famous are the long, multi-pitch routes on the 650 metre / 2,145 feet high granite massif called "The Chief" in Squamish. Whether you want to scale sheer rock faces or just learn the basics, there are plenty of opportunities in Whistler. Most tours offer enough instruction to get you up and climbing in the same day. An on-site guide will coach and offer assistance. Half-day sessions are held in the Whistler area while full days take place in Squamish. Full two-day courses are aimed at those with little or no experience; learn techniques, rope management, anchor building, rappelling and safety.
