Bouldering in Squamish

I've been in Squamish for about three weeks now and I'm still coming to terms with just how amazing this place is.

The insane amount of boulders scattered though out the forest conveniently shaded over by thousands of pine trees and a 600 meter wall makes it possible to climb at any point of the day. 

 Smooth rock is what Squamish is all about!


Working Vince Pinch in the Grand Wall Area.  

There is so much natural beauty in the forest, the air is fresh and the scenery is just amazing.
Squamish is completely surrounded by mountains covered with snow and pine trees and there's a huge volcano just chilling in the background.

The style of climbing here is really different from Australia, all the climbing is on polished granite which requires good footwork and core tension.

Because my time is relatively short here in Squamish, I've decided to only focus on projecting a coupe of times a week and leave the rest of the time to climbing as many classic boulders as humanly possible.

Time is just flying by and I don't want to leave with only a hand full of ticks in my Squamish guide book!

At first I was camping which is 8 bucks a night, but since then I've managed to acquire a lovely Mazda van which has a double bed and a sweet cooking area at the back.

I'm estimating about 6 or so more weeks in Squamish at which point I'll be heading down to Bishop!!
