Crevasse Camping – Mt Garibaldi
Last week got to go up onto Mt Garibaldi again but in a bit of a storm…..did snow good old Crevasse Camping!
Our clients Doug and Tom didn’t bail just because of a little poor weather. Gotta like the spirit! Only snow 40cm on us overnight. Was a joy getting up in the night twice to clean the snow off our collapsing tent… The crevasse was the best place to camp out of the howling wind.
Fun trip to be out in a real storm.
Mt Garibaldi Guide – Altus Mountain Guides
One of our last trips to Mt. Garibaldi. Still managed to get out on the Mountain in September. With 50 to 80cm of new snow fall on the mountain it made it difficult travel on the glacier. Especially with all the crevasses just covered up on the glacier. With the owner of Summit Co in Oklahoma,
we still managed to have a great time and see some fantastic views!
Trad Lead Climbing Course – Squamish
Was fun to get out with two clients on a Trad Lead Climbing Course in Squamish.
We started with just leading and then we progressed into leading on gear. Good job Jodie and Drew! Great to see people on their first Rock climbing leads and first traditional lead climbing climbs!
Keep it up!

Mt. Garibaldi – Squamish BC – Summited!
July 16th was a great day to Summit Mt. Garibaldi!! Perfect weather and great travel conditions made for a fantastic summit. We hung out for almost an hour enjoying the sun and views from the top. We even had the Jet boil along to make coffee on the top of the mountain. Both Frank and Jeff did a great job for being beginner mountaineers.
