Mount Fay – Canadian Rocky Mountains



DESCRIPTION

Mount Fay – Canadian Rocky Mountains

“Edit this“

Climb Mount Fay with Altus Mountain Guides, Mount Fay Guide. Mt Garibaldi or also known as Diamond Head is in Garibaldi Provincial Park and is the last peak in the chain of strato-volcanos that extends up from California’s Mt. Shasta.  Mt Garibaldi sports massive glaciers and a truly Olympian summit in Garibaldi Park. This two day guided trip up Mt Garibaldi has a bivouac at the edge of the Warren Glacier and a steep snow/ice climb up the north-east face of the mountain to its highpoint at 2678 meters or 8,786 feet. This is a grand outing that takes you literally from Sea to Sky! Scaling Mt Garibaldi with a guide is a “must do” climb on the Sea to Sky corridor.  Mountaineering on Mt Garibaldi is an experience that has to be seen to believed.  The vistas off the top of Mt Garibaldi looking down to the Howe Sound are next to none world wide.”
