Mount Garibaldi Summit

Towering volcano climbing above the pacific

Located in Garibaldi Provincial Park, Mount Garibaldi, also known as Diamond Head, is the last peak in the chain of stratovolcanoes extending from California’s Mount Shasta.

Mount Garibaldi sports massive glaciers and a truly Olympian summit.  This two days guided trip entails a bivouac at the edge of the Warren Glacier and a steep snow/ice climb up the northeast face of the mountain to its high point at 2678 meters (8,786 feet).

This is a grand outing that takes you literally from Sea to Sky! The vistas off the top of Mt Garibaldi looking down to the Howe Sound are next to none worldwide.

*Due to the remote nature of this mountain access requires a 4x4 vehicle or helicopter access.  Either option can be added at an additional cost*

Itinerary

Day 1: Meet your guide in Squamish, 4×4 approach to Brohm ridge, hike and scramble over the “Shark’s Fin,” set up camp on the moraines by the Warren Glacier, below Mt Garibaldi.  Glacier “warm-up” walk to scope out the route for the next day.

Day 2: Alpine start, ascend the Warren glacier to the Northeast face of Mt Garibaldi. Climb ice and snow to 45 degrees and scramble the final slopes to the dramatic summit, overlooking the caldera and Howe Sound. Descend the same route off Garibaldi back to camp and down to Brohm Ridge the same day. Enjoy the view back to the summit of Garibaldi from Squamish in time for dinner.
