Another classic day of Squamish multi pitch climbing! The summer of rock guiding keeps us plenty busy with many laps of the Chief, courses and trips in and around Squamish. How ever it always a treat to step the the technical level up and guide some of the harder multi pitch climbs!!

Feet up on Grand Wall

Grand Wall guided today!

What a fun day out today on the Grand Wall in Squamish BC! Such a great route. Thanks for the day Eric! Was dry other than the step over to the start of the 5,10b traverse pitch and the upper 5.10a slab pitch had one wet foot hold. Other than that the rest of the route was totally dry even the word. It’s good to go!
