Mt Habrich is a fantastic alpine Granite rock route right in the backyard of Squamish and Vancouver. Mt. Habrich is reached buy using the new Sea to Sky Gondola. Mt. Habrich is an excellent location with amazing views and bigger mountains than expected. With the Gondola to take away the elevation to get into the Alpine it makes for an excellent day.
Mt Habrich is for the rock climber that wants to get out and climb in the Alpine. A great training ground for bigger mountains like the Bugaboos. Not to be underestimated, for it is still a lot of vertical to get to the summit. A long summit day can be up to 13 hours from the top of the gondola and back.
Meet at the Base Camp Cafe at the base of the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish at 8am. From there we will take the Gondola up and hike out into the backcountry after a final gear check. Hike and or bike for 4 kilometres to the start of the Harbrick climbing trail. From there we will ascend up to the start of Mt. Habrich for another 800 meters of distance, gaining 1500 feet or 450 meters. Climbing, on rock, leads to some of the best views the Sea to Sky Corridor has to offer from the summit of Mt Habrick.
