Arcteryx Climbing Academy

Arc’teryx Climbing Academy 2017

Squamish, located at the head of Howe Sound, is home to world class rock climbing on granite cliffs that seem to poke right out of the ocean amidst a thick forest of lush, towering trees. It is also home to the annual Arc’teryx Climbing Academy.   Organized and run by Arc’teryx, the event will take place July 20-23, 2017.

The line-up looks fantastic!  Educational seminars and clinics with solid line-up of athletes including Will Gadd, Hazel Finley, Jonathan Siegrist, Will Stanhope, Brette Harrington, and Ines Papert.  Live presentations every day with a keynote presentation by Hayden Kennedy.  On top of all there there are toonie breakfasts, live music and a trade show with brands such as Arc’teryx, Scarpa, DMM, Five Ten, Camp and more.
