Blackcomb Buttress is an unbeatable way to spend a day in Whistler! Let one of our certified ACMG Mountain Guides guide you up the Blackcomb Buttress in Whistler on Blackcomb Peak. Your Mountain Guide will take you on the short walk from the gondola, leading to scenic Blackcomb Lake.  From Blackcomb Lake, we scramble most of the way up the 200 meter Blackcomb Buttress and rock climb short sections with difficulties up to 5.7. Don’t worry if it is too hard - your guide can always haul you up! Once on the mountain summit of Blackcomb Peak, you will descend the Blackcomb Glacier back to the lifts.
