Climbing & Caving
Rock climbing (Don Weixl photo)
The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is home to some truly magnificent and challenging rock climbing and mountaineering opportunities.
Rugged Coast Mountain slopes, sheer granite rock faces and glaciated summits are all within easy driving distance of British Columbia's largest city.
For urban climbers, Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver is a great spot for a quick climbing session without having to leave the city. But for the big stuff, thrill-seekers worldwide head to the Stawamus Chief in Squamish, while Whistler offers some exciting sport bolted face climbs. Between the two, the Tantalus Range of the Coast Mountains appeals to serious climbers and mountaineers alike.
In Mighty Fraser Country, try Mount Slesse, which is regarded as one of the 50 classic climbs in North America. Its 900m/2,953ft north east buttress offers some of the continent's most popular climbing objectives. On the Sunshine Coast, check-out the Eldred Valley in Powell River.
